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.

6462 was a Great Decision
Living in Northern Michigan close to water we are in a snow belt so we have considered a installing a generator since purchasing our home nearly 2 years ago.

We are seniors and husband has health issues that have made it increasing difficult for him to get around so we decided to take the plunge and purchase a generator from a local dealer here in our quaint town.

Very professional installation. Great guys.

Was installed on 3/7/17 which was a Tuesday. The following day I heard the generator kick on and hubby said it was going through it's "test run". Less than an hour later I heard it come back on again. We had some extremely strong winds that day (60mph). The power had gone out due to weather and the Generac generator stepped right in without missing a beat. The blinking clocks on appliances were the only telltale signs there was any loss of power. I believe there was a 30 second delay between loss and generator kicking on.

The slogan on their invoice is "We Have The POWER To Provide You Peace Of Mind"

That is precisely what it did.. within the first 24 hours we had it!

It works seamlessly!
Didn't know we were having a power outage until I got to the nonfunctioning stop light. I've only had it a month, but so far, so good.

This new generator has the options we were looking for: auto start, scheduled exercise, cold weather kit and affordable.

It's already saved my a$s twice!
My neighbor thanked me for installing this generator as he was sure Murphy's law would prevent the power from ever going out again! HA! But sure enough, it went out twice while we were home, once for 8 hours while I was in the middle of a project indoors requiring soldering... The transfer is quick and smooth, less than 30 seconds and you are up and running. It's pretty quiet considering it's powering my whole house. Occasionally I get a beep out of my computer UPS as the power does fluctuate a tiny bit but it's mostly rock solid. My home automation system bugs out a bit as the automation signals travel along the AC lines but again it's pretty solid. The installation was not that bad, I did it myself in a couple of weekends. The hardest part was getting the 300+ pound generator in place. 4 guys and 2 steel bars made it easy in the end. I'm glad I finally did it and I highly recommend this for any homeowner that lives in areas where the power can be challenging at times.

Perfect automated solution for Power Outages
We purchased this due to an increasing amount of power outages in our area. This unit performs perfectly for our small server environment in a rural industrial area where power resources can be out for several hours to days a few times a year. We've got batteries that have 45m of runtime, but with increasing issues we decided to seek something more permanent. Our electricians were able to get this installed and running within 3 business days (8hr shifts) and is enough to support three servers, a 2 ton AC unit, and a few other networking odds and ends. The pickup time from a sensed outage is less than 10 seconds, including generator spinup. We've got a 100gal (420lbs) propane tank feeding this and after 2.5hrs of runtime so far only used 5% of that tanks fuel. It works so well that I'm considering purchasing a unit for my home. The Mobil Link makes monitoring a snap, and highly recommended! Everything about this Generac screams quality and reliability. I couldn't be happier with this project.

Nice looking unit and we will see what else if it ever needs to run. Lots of money for something you hope never needs to be used.

I installed it myself
What was nice was all the tech. information that came with the generator. All the drawings and wire schematics that was required to pull building permits were precise and exactly what was needed. I am a HVAC contractor so installing the gas line and high voltage lines were a easy task but I still used a licensed electrical contractor to install the panel and terminate all the wiring. I did the commissioning of the generator as per the easy factory instructions and everything worked just as the factory recommended. I did like the start up check list. Since its installation, the generator cycles on every Saturday and we have cycled it on under a load and it functions like clock work. What a cleaver and neat project and now very needed and functioning generator in the time of need.

This product has been a great investment
Since we installed our generator, we have been out of hydro 3 times in less than a month. Each time the generator has operated as it should. We are very pleased with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone.
