The Japa 422 Mid-Range Log Rack is a sturdy, metal rack, that is a great way to improve your firewood workflow. It’s a step up from the Japa 465, can hold more logs, and has more features. The 422 comes with two powered infeed rollers standard. And there is a power singulator that will advance one log at a time onto the infeed rollers.
It’s gravity fed, so you manually roll the logs down the rack. However, it’s sloping design makes this easy to do. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to have a hook or pickaroon to assist. It’s a great addition to any workflow and is sure to increase your output.
The Japa 422 will work with the Japa 365+ Basic, 365+ Pro, 395, 405, and 435. It can be connected using the valves and connectors that are standard on those machines.
Benefits of a Log Rack
A log rack is a great way to keep your logs off the ground and ready to process. The less time you spend staging, the more efficiently you can work. This is where a log rack comes in handy.
As a heavy duty, but simple log rack, the Japa 422 Mid-Range Log Rack lets you prep your workspace before powering up your machine.
However, if you need a smaller rack, then check out the Japa 465 log rack.
We also offer hydraulic timber decks, such as the Japa 471 Timber Deck and Japa 47901 Timber Deck.
