Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

In a pinch power
We had a severe storm and lost power. The initial information was our area would be without power for up to 4 days.

I purchased this at a Lowes store and got the last one they had. The 8000 watt unit powered my 2 freezers,a Refrigerator,my center air conditioner, And my medical oxygen concentrator with power to spare.

My wife was even able to finish her canning that we were in the middle of when the power went out.

The 9 gallon fuel tank ran the unit for 12 hours with fuel to spare when I went to refill it.

Thank you

We bought this generator not too long ago, and it is just perfect. It ran our 2 refridgerators, some lights, some fans, and phone chargers fine for 18 hours during a power outage. We are getting a transfer switch installed so you only have to use one big wire instead of a bunch of extension cords. We are going to have it run our pellet stove, well, and pump too.

Great power!
Purchased January 2011 for home backup for all the severe T storms we have in Alabama. Can power my furnace fan (I use natural gas to heat), fridge, TV and PC simultaneously without breaking a sweat. Easy to start but I do need to charge it every 3 months or so to keep it that way. The gas meter does not operate properly but its fuel efficiency is excellent (9 gallons runs 12 hrs at 50% load). Overall, very easy to operate and more powerful than most consumer/lite commercial generators on the market. The only improvement I would suggest is adding a wattage/load meter.

Workhorse Generator that can handle most household needs
Without buying a whole house, gas powered generator, this is the best deal you can get. This generator is powerful, reliable, and easy to operate. I have experienced no problems with my generator, and have been able to keep my family comfortable during power outages and other events where this device is required.

Awsome product!
We purchased our generator during a power outage to save 2 chest freezers full of food. The ability to run so many things with very little gas usage and the ability to get through a power outage knowing the generator will be handle any of our needs is great! It was a snap to set up and get running, after purchasing the genreator and getting it home, everything we needed was up and running in 15 minutes. The generator an over 9 hours on a tank of gas which was a great plus! We had 2 extended power outages this year (longer thn 3 days each) the generator jhas already more than paid for itself!

We purchased this generator before hurricane Irene from Lowes. It was on a huge sale so we got it for a very low price. This generator ran for over 5 days straight except for refueling and we actually changed the oil once because it was at about 35 hours and it needed it's first oil change. When you get the generator, it has EVERYTHING you need to get going. They give you 2 bottles of oil, 2 oil filters, the wheels, 2 spark plugs, and a air filter too. Wonderful product and I recommend this to anyone who is running their furnace, TV's, lights, wells, and refrigerators.

This is the generator you are looking for!
After lengthy research I settled on the XG8000E- Out of the box you are impressed with quality construction of the generator, easy assembly and start up- Who in this day and time includes a maintenance kit, funnel, absorbent cloth, wipe, fuel conditioner, extra filter, tools, spark plug and oil? Generac does because they still build products in American and take pride in their work. This is an excellent product

To be fair the only cons I have are the wheels- they are plastic and on this large a unit should be steel and pneumatic- the folding handling mechanism though convenient needs a lock out pin- both would be minimal cost upgrades. These two items are the main reason this product is not 5 stars across the board

Look no further this is the unit you need!

I bought this generator the week before Hurricane Sandy. I was impressed with the amount of power this unit generated. While my neighbors were in the dark my family was doing laundry, cooking and watching satellite television.

Fires up like a Marine, purrs like a kitten
Our XP8000 was easy to assemble, is easy to move when needed, and runs like a champion. Has served us well, twice, since we purchased it in September. Now looking forward to the next winter storm.

Great backup generator
My XG8000E was well packaged, easy to set up and fired up on the first crank after topping up the oil. It's run great (I've already got 15 hours on it) and I'm looking at years of trouble free use. I especially appreciate the spare oil/air filters and spark plug. Thanks Generac!
