The 612 is powered by a fuel-efficient 200-HP (149 kW) Volvo Tier 3 diesel engine.

Hydraulic Control System

Machine features a responsive Danfoss Plus+1 hydraulic control system. Power demand joystick-controlled steering includes full oscillation lock and 40-degrees of side-to-side articulation.

Powershift Transmission

The 612 utilizes a powershift transmission instead of hydrostatic to generate higher transport speeds and faster cycles.

Engineering Upgrades

To enhance performance and help save customers money over the machine's life cycle, the forwarder is engineered with increased cooling capacity, updated torque converters, and improved cab mounts and frame.

Ground Clearance

Ample ground clearance of 20 inches (51 cm) and low overall height allow for efficient transport.

Weight Distribution

Excellent weight distribution assists with tackling steep grades, while low operating weight keeps ground pressure low to minimize ground disturbance.


A joystick-controlled Kesla F600 crane features an extendable boom and bypass grapple.

Operator Cab

A spacious, comfortable tilting cab offers a deluxe seat, lighting, circulation fan, heater and air conditioning.

Fuel Tank

45-gallon (170 L) fuel tank capacity allows for longer operating intervals.
