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 generator, powerful with plenty left.
This generator was purchased for our camper and around the house for emergencies. Let me say wow. It has power left with a 24' travel with ac and full lighting and appliances. I found a great deal with a great special. Wheels and handle kit are awesome additions. I recommend.

Bought this on Tuesday because we were going to be hit by hurricane Matthew, fortunately only had to use it for a few hours. Assembly and preparation was easy, just followed the instructions. Test ran it Tuesday, started on the first pull tested it under load with some power tools worked great. The power went out Friday so I hooked it up, started again on the first pull, handled all the loads just fine. I could tell when the refrigerator would startup by the generator adjusting for it. Was a little concerned because we were still having rain and big wind gusts, but the generator handled all of that. Ran it again on Saturday, although it took two pulls to start, just for another test and then drained the fuel tank.

Hurricane Proof
Bought it three weeks before Hurricane Matthew. Set it up when I got home and it cranked on one pull. Had a transfer switch installed and it pulled everything in the house except for AC, Water Heater, Range and Dryer. Had no problem running my fridge, freezer, microwave, lights, TV, electric griddle, toaster oven and even more in a 4 bed house. We were without utility power for three days, and other than lack of hot water, we really couldn't tell. We were the only house with working exterior lights in the entire neighborhood. We weren't roughing it at all. The only thing I can find wrong with it is the engine hour meter seems to count two hours for every real hour. It's saying it has ran for 154 hours, when it's only ran for about 60-72 hours. Pretty strange, but it's a minor detail.

Great little gen set!
Bought for home to deal with outages. Used during one storm worked great! Very fuel efficient even under heavy load. It easily ran all the lights, tv/sat box, well pump, sump pump, hot water heater, everything except the central hvac. I wish it had an electric starter just in case my wife needed to use it and I wasn't home but for the price I can't complain, It does start very easy and she is able to pull start it. The only downfall is it is a little noisy. I am going to build an enclosure for it this winter. But a big thumbs up for the unit!

Great portable generator but a little loud.
This generator always starts on the first pull. Works great! I did require service in the first year for a failed fuel gauge (float fell off of float arm). My customer service experience was excellent and the new fuel gauge arrived quickly. My only suggestion for quality improvement would be too make the unit quieter. AND if you come up with a new muffler or something let everyone know. We will all purchase one if you do not price it too high.

I purchased this generator in anticipation of an ice storm that did not materialize. However last year we were without power for four days. On day three we were able to get a generator from my parents and re-wire the furnace to get the blower going to heat the house up from 40 degrees back to livable. Now that I have this generator I know that my family and I will be safe and dry (gotta run that sump pump too!) until the power comes back on.

Oklahoma has ice, snow and tornado's. I am now comfortable knowing that my family will be able to have power if mother nature comes our way.
