The Japa 47901 Hydraulic Timber deck is the largest and heaviest Japa log rack. It features three infeed chains that move the logs down the deck. It is durable and has a large capacity that can be increased even more with extensions. You can choose to add one or two extensions. And when two are used, the deck is almost 21 feet long.
These can be run both forward and in reverse to adjust your log positions. Furthermore, the dispenser allows you to separate logs easily, and move only one onto the infeed conveyor at a time.
Benefits of a Timber Deck
Japa’s Timber Decks are built to handle large amounts of logs. They are sturdy enough to handle bulky and heavy logs. And their built-in hydraulics allow the infeed chains to be controlled from your processor. The greatest benefit of a large hydraulic timber deck is an improved work flow. Specifically, you will spend less time staging and more time processing your logs.
One way to fully utilize your Japa timber deck is by having one person run the processor while the other loads the deck. This is a highly efficient way to run your processor setup. It lessens down time and allows you to create a lot of firewood quickly.
The Japa 47901 hydraulic timber deck is a firewood professionals best friend. However, if you need something a little smaller, we also offer the Japa 471 Timber Deck.
