The Japa Cleaner, firewood cleaner, is a rotating drum style cleaner that cleans your firewood. It is compatible with all Japa firewood processors, but it can also be used on its own. It features a rotating barrel with evenly spaced pipes. This lets it separate dirt, chaff, splinters, and sawdust from your firewood.
There are separate speed controls for the barrel and conveyor. And a powered chain drive outfeed conveyor comes standard. You can also adjust the slew angle on the outfeed conveyor, as well as the the overall height of the cleaner. This lets you optimize your workflow as needed.
Powering Your Cleaner
The Japa Cleaner is hydraulically powered. It comes with Ag style quick connect hydraulic couplers, which are some of the most common couplers used in agriculture and construction. This allows you to connect it to any of our Japa firewood processors, as well as any other processor with this style of couplers.
Many customers have had success powering their cleaner with the BravePro Hydra-Buddy Hydraulic Power Pack, which is available here: https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200666108_200666108
It can also be powered by a combustion engine pack – please contact us for more information.
Cleaning Your Wood
Below the rotating drum, there are two metal panels that guide debris and dirt to the center of the machine. This allows you to collect any kindling or dirt that falls out of the machine. As a result, you can use the Japa Cleaner as more than just a cleaner.
For starters, if you have a lot of kindling mixed in with your wood, you can easily collect it. Then you can bundle it to either sell with firewood, or you can use it to create kindling packages.
Additionally, dirty or rotten wood will also be separated as it moves through. This can be collected and then moved or disposed of much easier than if you had to separate it by hand.
In conclusion, the Japa Cleaner, firewood cleaner will make a great addition to any workflow. However, if you are interested in a different style, check out the Japa Roller, a disc style cleaner.
