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.

Can this 8000 power most things in a 2400 ft. house with avg. outlet & heat or aircon. ?
lee the do all on May 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have this generator. It can not power your A/C but it can power my entire 2300sf house in MI. I have it hooked up to my main panel with an interlock switch. As long as you are not turning on every appliance on in your house at once you should be ok.

Note: I have Gas Heat, Gas Water Heat, Gas Dryer, Gas Stove. IF you have these in electric then you will be limited on what you can run at the same time.
What size type battery does it need. Is this series motor twin cylinders and how much HP?
John on Dec 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The included battery is a 12VDC 10 Ahr.
redeye00 on Oct 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the XG is the best portable option for use with electronics. The total harmonic distortion on the GP series is too high for use with sensitvie equipment like LCD TV's and laptops, but great for refrigerators, stoves, well pumps, power tools etc... Of course, the best option for home protection is a Standby, which will keep you electricity working even when you are not there to prevent food from going bad, pumps working to keep basements from flooding etc...
How do you keep the battery charged in this unit?
Garbear on Oct 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The battery will charge while the Generator is running. You should do monthly tests to keep it operating in peak condition and to keep the battery charged, however, if you choose not to, you can charge the battery with any standard clip on style 12V automotive charger, or If it is discharged when you need to use it, this generator also has a pull string manual start, so you can still get it running,
