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.

    Installed with a generac 30a,six circuit manual transfer switch with a six circuit sub panel. Should have gotten the bigger generac transfer switch(10 circuits) would have been easier on the electrician. With 12 circuits total, sump ejector,micrwave,2 fridges, tv, washer,dryer,dishwasher etc. machine handles load well as long as everything doesn't run/start at the same time.

        Q:

        Whats the difference with the different types of generators ie; XG, LG, and all the other ones.
        Asked on 9/4/2012 by Tina has NO clue on different types from Chaplin CT

        1 answer

        • Staff Reviewer

          A:

          The major differences is the Total harmonic distortion or how clean the power out put is and the intended use or how heavy duty the motor is. The GP series is for basic home use for basic home electricity and emergency power. It will provide power for lights, refrigeration, well pumps, sumps pumps and garage doors. It is NOT designed for sensitive electronics like laptops or LCD TV's. The XG Generators provide cleaner power and are designed for longer use and can be used with electronic devices. The XP generators are the top line and can be used all day, everyday on construction sites, used with variable speed power tools, and electronics. For more detailed explanations or for assistance choosing the right generator, please feel free to call our sales line and speak with one of our knowledgeable sales representatives.

      New Vs. Reconditioned

      Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

      • 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.).

        New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

                  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.

As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed.

                  • Failures caused by any act of God and other force majeure events beyond the manufactures control.
                  • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
                  • Products that are modified or altered in a manner not authorized by Generac in writing.

                  THIS WARRANTY IS IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, SPECIFICALLY, GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

                   

                  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.

                   

                  GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS ONLY LIABILITY SHALL BE THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF PART(S) AS STATED ABOVE.

NEGLIGENCE.

                   

                  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. Purchaser/owner also may have other rights that vary from state to state.
