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.

Great product!
I get 4 to 5 power outages a year. I finally decided to purchase this generator. I searched online and in stores every generator available. 5 days after the generator was delivered we had a power failure and the the temp was -5. It fired right up and provided power to 2 space heaters, lights, TV, and satellite system. We turned off 1 heater and cooked dinner in the microwave. The generator worked to perfection in extreme low temperature. The final temperature actually hit minus 9 degrees that night. I have worked with generators in the past and I decided on Generac CP 5500 because of its quality and value for the price. You get what what you pay for and I would recommend this generator to anyone.

Extremely high quality
This is a very high quality product and the price is much lower than the "off brands" sold at [@] This costs about 100.00 less, but is a much better product. Highly recommended! Don't wait till the power is out - it takes several days to get this due to the shipping method.

glad I had it when the lights went out
I bought this recon a few years ago. Unit came with a brand new motor. I was happy about that. I used it for the first time for a back yard wedding reception. It ran without hesitation for approx 8 to 10 hours. Checked oil level afterwards and it was still full. Enough power to run a bunch of string lights and a 6 foot fan. Had a power outage a few weeks ago. Had it running for about 9 hours without a problem. I powered up 2 refrigs and several lights. I also powered up the TV, but the cable was out. Unit easily handled the power demand without any drag or power reduction. Unit starts easy. Only con is the noise. If the unit had a better muffler it would make it much more quiet. A great product for a great price. Would do it again.

Perfect for the job
I bought this specifically for power outages to run my computer and it does a great job. And since we just had a record breaking power outage for the entire week of July 4th, it has done a terrific job. This is my first experience with a portable generator, and my first experience with CPO Generac. Very, very happy with this little machine and customer service.

Perfect for us!
We live in the mountains and our power goes off frequently. This generator keeps our freezer, refrigerator, hot water, and microwave going. What more could we ask for? After the initial fill with gasoline and oil, it started with the second pull and hummed for the next 15 hours when power was restored.

Worth the investment...
With the recent storms causing power outages and the high heat in the east, this has paid for itself multiple times over. Well worth the investment. Going to install a transfer switch soon to make it even easier.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

  • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
