This item ships freight. Need a liftgate? Details.

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.

    Q:

    Do Helical Cutterheads last a long time and are they worth having when you eventually have to replace them? They are rather expensive to replace. Are they hard to set? MS thanks.

      A:

      Helical head inserts are carbide sharpened on four sides. Carbide cutters last 10 times longer than high speed steel. Even in a production environment 1 set of inserts could possibly last 2 or 3 years. There is no "setting". Loosen the screw, remove the dull tool, install the new tool ( make sure the mark on the insert is pointing in the same direction as the others) replace and tighten the screw. Done. With the longevity of the 4 sided cutters and the ease of installation, absolutely worth the cost. Hope this helps! RR

      A:

      Helical cutter heads typically last longer than standard blades. The major benefit of a Helical head is due to the small number of blades that hit the surface of the material at the same time, thus providing a much smoother finish.
