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.

Just installed one of these 10 kw 200 amp last week end. It can be done if you can read a schematic. Turned off power to home unit powers up right away. Powers restored no one will notice no loss of power after power is restored. Easy to set dip swithes to tell generator what It is 10, 15,kw. Also for warm up time 20 seconds for temps over 40, 50 sec for under 40 degrees f. Wish I had one at my place. Awesome generator and trasfer switch amazing product.

Meets Expectations
I had this unit installed in August and a week later a bird landed on a transformer breaker and caused a power outage. The generator kicked in and performed as expected. Weekly exercise occurs exactly on time with the unit relatively quiet. I especially like the footprint of the unit and the fact that the 16 circuits provide most of my household electricity needs.
