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.

Freight orders placed before 3PM EST (M-F) ship same day.


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.

      do NOT leave the fuel in the tank over winter....you'll be cleaning the fuel intake, and it won't be fun. Note: this is actually exactly what is recommended in the manual, so if you do what they say, you'll enjoy many years of fault free service

          Comments about XG8000E XG Series 8000 Watt Electric-Manual Start Portable Generator:

          After hurricane Irene (lost power for 5 days) we decided a backup generator was in our future. After extensive research I selected the XG8000E for its features, power capacity and low THD. Setup was extremely easy and the unit started on the first try. Two days later I decided to connect the generator to the house and give it a full test. Tried to start it and it would not start. After many attempts I noticed there was an air pocket in the fuel filter (located in fuel line between the tank and the carb). Since the filter inlet/outlet is horizontal I turned it vertical. Unit started on the next try. In fairness I had only a small amount of fuel in the tank. Others have said you should mostly fill the tank and let it stand for a few minutes after opening fuel shutoff. The generator was more than enough to power the house. Overall pleased with the gen set and recommend it! I also recently converted this generator to run on natural gas with a kit from US Carburetion. Runs great!!

            We bought this Generator last year during Hurricane Rita, it has paid for itself a million times over, now this year Virginia is getting hit bad with storms and it has already come to our rescue twice, didn't have the money to spend in 2011, but if I had to do it all over again, I would find the money someplace, there is not a dollar value you can put on this Generator.

              We had an electrician come and install the switch-over panel, unboxed the generator and went through the easy set-up procedures. Started on the first try. Tested it, and it ran everything in the house. We are very happy with this generator, though we hope we never have to use it!

                  A:

                  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...

                  A:

                  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,

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
                New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

              Warranty

              GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS “ONE YEAR” LIMITED WARRANTY FOR RECONDITIONED PORTABLE GENERATORS

Generac will, at its option, repair or replace any part which, upon examination, inspection and testing by Generac or a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Dealer, is found to be defective.

              All transportation costs under the warranty, including return to the factory, are to be borne and prepaid by the purchaser/owner. This warranty applies only to Generac reconditioned portable generators and is not transferable from original purchaser. Save your proof-of-purchase receipt. If you do not provide proof of the initial purchase date, the manufacturer’s shipping date of the product will be used to determine the warranty period.

              NOTE: For the purpose of this warranty “consumer use” means personal residential household or recreational use by original purchaser. This warranty does not apply to units used for Prime Power in place of utility where utility power service is present or where utility power service does not normally exist. Once a generator has experienced commercial or rental use, it shall thereafter be considered a non-consumer use generator for the purpose of this warranty.

              All warranty expense allowances are subject to the conditions defined in Generac’s Warranty Policies, Procedures and Flat Rate Manual.


              WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE FOLLOWING:

              • Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper use. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
              • Failures caused by any act of God and other force majeure events beyond the manufactures control.
              • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.

              • Telephone, cellular phone, facsimile, internet access or other communication expenses.

              Any implied warranties which are allowed by law, shall be limited in duration to the terms of the express warranty provided herein. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to purchaser/owner.

              Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to purchaser/owner. Purchaser/owner agrees to make no claims against Generac Power Systems, Inc. based on negligence. This warranty gives purchaser/owner specific legal rights.
