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.

Powerful (1)
The 7000 Watt Elite generator is a great machine for emergency power.
I purchased it during hurricane Sandy and it ran flawlessly for 7 days. It provided power to 2 refrigerators, gas furnace blower motor, sump pump, a few lights, and television with cable box. My wife was even able to do a load of wash and dry it in the gas dryer.

The controls are simple and I like the fuel guage and hour meter. The unit ran on a tank of gas for 12 hours. Several of the neighbors on my street were using Briggs and Stratton generators during Sandy too.

Happy with my choice
Lost power during Sandy and decided it was time for a generator. Looked at the choices and picked two. This was the first to become available (4 months later). Both units had Briggs and Stratton engines. We have not lost power since but I run the unit once a month for 30-40 minutes with a load of the refrigerator and freezer. Always starts right away (manual or electric start). It's not quiet when running but I didn't expect that with this type unit.

Very happy with its performance
Was fortunate enough to find it at our local hardware store the day before Hurricane Sandy hit (customer had ordered it and changed his mind while I was there; it was the last one store had). They set it up and delivered in time for the storm. Powered refrigerator, furnace and misc appliances and lights during the five days without power after the storm. Going to leave it set up and ready to use if required with 'nor easter headed at us later this week.

Feature Rich 7000 Watt Portable Generator
I purchased this generator after Hurricane Sandy and a subsequent Nor' Easter left us without power. I was able to power the sump pump, forced hot air furnace, two refrigerators, several lights, computer and printer, bathroom lights and fans, and television for 24 hours per day for 9 days. My wife even did some wash. The biggest problem I encountered was finding a gas station that had both gasoline and electric and could pump gasoline.

What I like about this generator is:
- Easy electric starting or alternative pull start (I've used both and it starts right up
- Fuel gauge eliminates guessing how much gas is remaining in the tank
- Moderate fuel consumption (I was getting over 10 hours per 7 gallon tank of gas)
- Hour meter (I could easily determine when the oil needed changing and how long the generator was used in total)
- 4 20 Amp convenience outlets
- 30 Amp twist lock connection (I have now installed a transfer panel which will make powering the home in the next power outage a snap)
- Ubiquitous support, there are a significant number of Briggs & Stratton dealers in my area

This is a great investment!

bought this unit 3 days after super storm sandy just in time for the noreaster that was coming. after all hooked up and running it started running rough ,exhaust smelled very rich,and at 5.25 hrs it quit and couldn't get it started,and that was at 1100 pm in the middle of the storm.Then to boot the major retailer I bought it from didn't want to take it back because the it had no box and there was gas in it,after 45 min of arguing they finally took it back,and I believe only because my brother worked there

It's a great choice
I bought this product because of power outages in Venezuela. That means, the generator had to travel overseas.

I received the generator in a facility in Florida, in excellent state, the box had no scratches.

Once I got the generator in Venezuela, it started seamlessly. It doesn't mean it's not noisy but it looks like a robust equipment, capable of working for hours without any trouble.

Definitely Briggs and Stratton builds equipment to last.

This prodcuct was well worth the investment!!
Got married and bought our first house up in the mountains in rural PA. where power outages occur frequently. Therefore a generator was a must have. Ordered the generator from Home and it arrived @ my doorstep when they said it would. removed unit from the box, put wheels on and added gas and oil and on the first turn of the key she fired right up. Was really suprised the battery was charged upon delivery. Unit has fired the first time on every pull and every turn of the key. Have it wired into the house and during Sandy was lucky and only lost power for 8 hours. But in that 8 hours it ran the whole house, 2 fridges, 600ft deep well pump, 80 gallon hot water heater, wood pellet stove, 1 deep freezer, 2 tvs, and all other mics. appliances. Unit ran that 8 hours on 1 tank of gas. Unit is slightly noisy but to be expected with the size of the unit. Great investment!!!!

Excellent Choice!!!!!
After Sandy, we deceided to install a transfer switch and purchase a generator....
After much homework and comparsion, the Briggs 7000 Elite was my final choice.
This generator is easy assembly and fast start up. I haven't had the opportunity to fully appreicate it, because we have not had any power outages yet, but I am sure
it will do its job and do it well............ We keep it on charge and its ready to go.
Also, it is a generator that many authorized dealers can be located in my area. where as the other generators do not have that customer option....
Trust Briggs, it makes an outstanding unit , that will surpass any other.. ..It is set up to handle my whole 2000 square foot house on a transfer switch of 10 circuits...with room to spare..
