Firewood processors

Japa® firewood machines are designed and manufactured in Laitila in Western Finland with decades of experience. Japa® is one of the market leaders in the professional sector and many recreational users also rely on our machines.

All Japa® machines are designed by our own product development team. We pay particular attention to product safety which is why our products feature extensive covers and shields, an automatic stop function and other product innovations that keep our customers safe. For us every detail matters – the splitting blades are of the best quality and we only use motors from well-established international brands such as Honda and Briggs & Stratton.

We have manufactured Japa® firewood machines with care and excellent craftsmanship in Laitila since 1977 offering top-quality machines for both professional and recreational use.
