About the Japa 315+ Firewood Processor


The Japa 315+ firewood processor is perfect for shared use or part-time contract work. This processor is equipped with a log feed and splitting mechanism that minimizes pusher movements. As a result, cutting logs, especially shorter logs, is much faster. To top it off, the infeed, cutting, and splitting functions are all controlled by one hand. Consequently, the Japa 315+ is very easy to use.

The splitting blade is easy to raise and lower. It can also be fully lowered so only the top blade is exposed, which is great for splitting smaller logs in half. It can cut logs up to 12 inches (30.48 cm) in diameter, to a maximum length of 19.7 inches (50.04 cm). Reliability, user comfort, and safety are the main priorities of the Japa 315+.

The PTO configuration requires 25 horsepower.

Consistent Firewood Lengths

The Japa 315+ comes with a positive log stopper. This metal positive log stop adjusts to your required cut length and will stop the log when it enters the chamber. Then, when the saw comes down to cut the log, the stopper moves up and out of the way. As a result, the log drops into the split chamber without getting caught on anything.

This guarantees that your cut lengths will be uniform from cut to cut. It takes the guesswork out of processing, and you don’t need to deal with a hanging chain or rubber antenna that can give inconsistent results.

Self-Lubricating Bar & Chain

The Japa 315+ has a hydraulic powered adjustable bar oil pump. It has a separate oil reservoir to automatically lubricate the bar and chain. As a result, it is less likely to overheat because there is less friction. Which, in turn, lets your bar and chain last longer.

A Safer Firewood Processor

The Japa 315+ meets all the current safety standards, and its active safety grills improve visibility inside the machine, making it easier to use. All the guards have been designed to ensure maximum visibility inside the processor, which helps with maintenance (i.e., accessing and servicing the chain). As an added safety feature, the hydraulics are tied to the safety guards. Whenever they are opened, the hydraulics and chainsaw will be turned off to prevent injury.


The Japa 315+ has hydraulics that make it compatible with log lifts and out-feed conveyors. The 315+ comes with a wood chute and a powered infeed conveyor. However, these can be upgraded. The wood chute can be upgraded to a powered outfeed conveyor. Likewise, you can also add a log lift to help with loading logs into the machine.

To handle larger wood, check out the Japa 365 Basic, the next step up. Or, you can look at the Japa 365 Pro for even more options.

1 review for Japa 315+ Firewood Processor

  1. Nate N

    We have a Japa 315+ that is powered by the PTO on the tractor. We have used the machine now for a year or better and have found that this machine is a great time saver if you need to process firewood for selling or just use for home heating needs. The 315+ will handle a diameter up to 12” which is big enough for what we need. Go for the bigger machines if you commonly handle larger diameter logs. The only parts that we have had any issues with have been a key way on the feed roller that came out of the slot causing the feed roller to not spin the conveyor belt. We also had a split ring clip that somehow came off but we found a replacement and kept moving. Overall it is a great machine and wish I could get the 365 but definitely satisfied this machine will keep doing its job. I can process logs for a few hours and still feel like I can go handle other jobs that need to be done. It takes a few moments to get used to the machine but after that I am sure that I process more firewood in 2 hours than I could in a full day of splitting with standard log splitter. I wish the log lifter control was located in a different place out of the way of logs on the ground. But ergonomically this machine is easy to use overall.
