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.

      Comments about XG8000E XG Series 8,000 Watt Electric-Manual Start Portable Generator:

      Very impressed with the performance of this generator. Upgraded from a smaller 5700 watt unit so we could at least use a window air conditioner along with other loads if power went down in the summer. Filtered oil lubrication system hopefully means this will be the last generator I will have to buy in my lifetime. Starts instantly and waveform looks good for a portable. Love the flip down handles as it makes it a smaller footprint to store on the back porch. My reconditioned unit showed up looking like new and I am very happy with CPO. Don't think you can really go wrong with this.

            I was looking for this specific generator and CPO was the only retailer to actually have units in stock. My generator arrived in perfect condition in a few days, as promised. I would definitely order from CPO again and recommend them to others without hesitation.

            Comments about XG8000E XG Series 8,000 Watt Electric-Manual Start Portable Generator:

            The assembly was quite easy and went well. I did not even bother to try to use the paper funnel that came with the unit to add the oil. I used a small plastic one that I had. A short piece of 3/8" hose would have been helpful but I did not have any handy. I added some gas and it started right up. I tested the recepticles and everything seems to be working fine. I am confident that I will be ready for the next power outage. Some items that concern me slightly are the battery and spark plug locations. These two areas are lacking in "user friendly" design. After the two year warrenty is up I will probably relocate the battery to be more accessable and I will use a battery that will accept a trickle charger. When it comes time to change the spark plug, it looks like that may take a little work to get to it. There is not much I can do about thet except deal with it when the time comes. The spring loaded handle locking device did stick as others have mentioned. It took a little work but I was able to free it up and used some WD40 and oil to get it working. If it sticks again I will probably drill some holes and use some drift pins. Overall I am very pleased with the unit and look forward to putting it to the test of a power outage. Who knows, the next time I have an outdoor project I may start up the XG8000E and run some extension chords and use my old electric power tools instead of my battery operated tools.

              We decided to purchase a generator because we were without power for 5-days as a result of the Derecho storm that hit Maryland last July. After much research, I purchased the 8000 watt Generac generator from CPO because they offered the most bang for the buck. The generator arrived ahead of schedule, just one week before Hurricane Sandy blew through Maryland. It was easy to assemble (...rear tires, front stand...) and, after following the instructions to the letter, it started on the first try. I would highly recommend this generator to anyone that's looking for a lot of power at the right price.

                  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;

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.

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.

              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.
