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.

Excellent Snow Blower for the Price
This snowblower was chosen over other brands because the engine is an honest to goodness Briggs and Stratton engine with available tune parts. Other brands had engines that were imports from China. As a TORO salesman stated "We will know how good the Chinese engines are in 4 to 5 years". I did not want to take a risk on a machine with no consumer history and no access to repair / tune-up parts. The Briggs and Stratton builds snow blower and the engine.

I use my snow blower to clean out 3 driveways, 1 block of sidewalks, and the areas around 2 fire hydrants. This machine can handle wet snow, piles of snow left from the street snow plow truck, and is very easy to operate.

the light (standard option) on the snow blower works very well. The engine can handle the snow blower very well. With heavy snow you just shift down to a slower ground speed.

This machine should last at least 20 years. Synthetic motor oil is recommended which I will use.

This machine is so new that a parts diagram is not yet published (December 2015) on the Briggs and Stratton parts manual website.

Easy To Use
No snow yet, but...
No snow, so hard to say a whole lot. As far as ease of building it, very simple if you follow the pictures. Also, second snow blower I've assembled, so that helped. Very quiet compared to my last one. Started on third pull, runs great. Controls are easy to figure out and the one hand operation is awesome.

Happy with my new snowblower
I SELECTED THE BRIGGS AND STRATTON TO REPLACE MY CRAFTSMAN WHICH WAS A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. AFTER HAVING USED THE MACHINE SEVERAL TIMES I FIND IT PERFORMS WELL UNDER DIFFICULT CONDITIONS. HAVING BEEN MADE IN THE USA IS A BIG PLUS. SEVERAL FRIENDS COMPLAINED THE RECENT HEAVY WET SNOW WAS TOO MUCH FOR THEIR MACHINES TO HANDLE--THE BRIGGS CLEARED IT ALL AWAY; THE ONLY DIFFICULTY HAS BEEN THE LOSS OF SEVERAL SMALL SCREWS WHICH THE MANUFACTURER IS REPLACING ALSO THE LIGHT COULD BE BRIGHTER.

ALL IN ALL I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE MACHINE.

Something made in America!!
The Briggs and Stratton is made in America. I purchased it to replace my old unit which breaks down with disappointing frequency. The light is a great feature-- I wish mine had two on it.

It starts easily; I have never used the electric start. I hope with regular oil changes and proper care it gives me years of service.
