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.

    Reconditioned can be good
    I use all types and sizes of nailers and impact wrenches. I re-roofed my home, installed walls and ceilings in my garage, re-built my rear porch roof. I also maintain and work on all my lawn service equipment, my trucks and cars. This compressor does a fine job maintaining and holding air pressure and operates all my professional air tools very well. I recommend a recon and save money and get the same warranty as a new one.

    Trade quality tool at home product price
    This is an amazing value on this pro grade compressor. If you need a portable unit with trade quality construction, you can't beat this one. Although it remains to be seen just how durable/reliable this is, it has the appearance of high quality and good construction.

    Great so far
    Was a bit nervous about re-con anything but, with the 1 yr guarantee and when I picked it up, I was surprised at how new it looked
    Shipped by frieght truck beware, must be someone there to sign for it so I opted to pick it up myself-fit into my Subaru Forester no problem-light enough to move myself

    the best small compressor
    you cant find a better 200psi!! compressor for the price. pressure stays up better then my other craftsman compressor with a tank twice the size.

    Just what I needed
    This the first compressor I've owned but it seems to have every thing I need. It would be nice if you didn't have to reach under the tank to drain it. This can be fixed with a little pipe and an elbow, not a big problem.

    I like it
    I use this in my basement shop and it is easy to get it up and down the stairs. It's portability to the job is great and it recovers quickly to provide the CFM's to use an orbital air sander.

    Looks like new!
    Took a chance and bought the reconditioned unit and couldn't be happier. The compressor looks like the new model and operates great. To me the savings are worth the risk.

    Exactly what I hoped for
    I was a little leary ordering a refurbed compressor sight unseen. But it turned out great, and I couldn't be happier. Charges up quick, is relatively quiet, and you can run forever thanks to the 200psi tank. One thing to note though is that this compressor pulls a full 15Amps. That means that it will run on a 15 amp circuit (as long as nothing else is running on that circuit. This is common to every compressor that I have ever had, and easily fixed by upgrading a garage circuit to a 20 amp.

    Looked as good as Brand New
    I bought this for my home garage shop. I have looked at many different models before deciding on this compressor. I must say I am very pleased with my purchase. I know from experience that this is quieter than most other compressors with comparable size. It fits neatly in the corner of my garage. I was unable to tell if this was a reconditioned or new item. [...] I would highly recommend this compressor to anyone. So far, it has been able to do anything I have attempted to do. This includes filling large truck tires (275/65-20) to nailing a fence and reupholstering furniture.
