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 PWBS-14CS 14 in. 1-Phase 1.5 HP 115V/230V Band Saw:

      I've had a 14" Rockwell and a 14" Delta over the years, and the Powermatic is a big step up with a bigger motor, carter guides, blower, blade tension lever, and other well thought out amenities. My only frustration is with the fence and miter storage hooks that do not perform well. I also bought the mobile stand so that I can move the saw around in my smallish shop. If I had the space I would go with a 20" model.

        I have used my 14in powermatic bandsaw mainly to resaw rough sawn Cherry. In combination with a Olsen blade it ate through 1 x 11 boards NO PROBLEM !!

        Great for fine cuts, first time re-saw worked well, lining up motor was a challenge, needs two people. The light, and other extras are well worth the price for this band saw. Top quality.

          So far I have done mostly re-sawing Cherry does a great job. The fence does not sit square to the table I will look into this later when I am done with my project.

              I make a small boxes, artistic designs in wood, etc.. I needed a saw that just stayed truer than the one I had. This definatley fit the bill. I love it. The only con is the light. It's too big and is not positioned very well. Probably will end up taking it off.

                  Powermatic engineers have made great improvements to the design and ease of use of their machines. The blade change on this band saw is much simpler than in previous generations. 3 hands are not required!
