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.

Swapped out old system-new system has nice upgrades
Just replaced my older 12KW Generac with a new Generac 16KW unit. The 12KW unit provided us with many years of dependable service, but developed an issue where it made sense to upgrade to the new 16KW system. The power on the new system is cleaner (electronic governor), providing a higher degree of consistent power (V and Hz) than the old unit. The new unit also has a much more sophisticated controller, allowing for quicker programming and more access to critical data. Also, the new enclosure is aluminum . . . no more rust! I'm happy!

Good value and reliable
We bought this generator two years ago. The installation went smoothly and quickly. I like that the generator auto starts/checks itself once a week...I find it very reassuring that all's well. It's not so loud that it annoys the neighbors. I also like it's modern high tech appearance. We loose power at least 6 times a year (winter and summer) always during extreme temperatures... the generator just takes over. It's such a smooth transition you may not notice the power went out until you go outside or notice the street lights are out. We decided on a 16K because it could power the entire house and we're glad we made that choice.

The Generac 16 kw generator meets all of our home needs
The generator operates as advertised with little to zero owner effort. The unit is is placed next to our air conditioner and is very nice looking. It is very compact. When operating the unit can barley be heard in the house when the windows are closed. It sounds about as loud as a lawn mower being operated about 25 to 50 yards away from the house. The transfer of power from commercial to the generator occurs in 10 seconds after the loss of power. It is instant full power, no brown out, or time waiting for generator to stabilize. We are very pleased with the Generac generator and the security of knowing we will not be sitting in the dark during the next power outage.

Have Not had the opportunity to use the Generator yet but if it runs as well as it tests out it will be great. If it is as good as the generac portable generator that I have used for years it will be great.

I already have the same generator at my cabin since 2002 where the power goes out frequently and it has been very dependable. My old one up in Northern Wisconsin is built with all metal casing and the newer one I just installed at my primary residence is mostly plastic casing. I do wish they would have stayed with the more durable metal but this is not to say that these Generacs are the best generators that money can buy. .

Excellent on all counts except a very minor issue. Locking the cover is difficult and could be improved.
