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 Generac GP Series 17,500 Watt Portable Generator:

just received my 17500E. Set-up & start-up was easy. Can't wait to use it. If it works as well as my old 10000 EXL I'll be more than pleased.

Comments about Generac GP Series 17,500 Watt Portable Generator:

Just purchased this unit. Easy to assemble and service to run. Started in just a couple of revolutions. Low idle works as ment too. When power is needed it throttles up. Started my 4 hp compressor for initial test. No problem. I would recommend this unit.

      We're sorry, due to hazardous shipping restrictions, we do not sell batteries for standby generators. You can find the required 26R wet cell battery that starts 8-60 kW standby generators at any auto parts store.

      Generac does not make a conversion kit for this generator. Many people claim it can be done, but it is not something we are able to recommend.

This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
  • Failures caused by any external cause or act of God, such as collision, theft, vandalism, riot or wars, nuclear holocaust, fire, freezing, lightning, earth-quake, windstorm, hail, volcanic eruption, water or flood, tornado or hurricane.
  • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
