New 20 US Ton Carry Deck


Broderson Manufacturing Corporation Releases the All-New IC-280-A 20 US Ton Industrial Carry Deck Crane

Lenexa, KS
Release: February 2021
For immediate release.

Broderson Manufacturing Corporation is pleased to announce the production release of the new 20 USt (18t) capacity IC-280-A industrial carry deck crane. The crane incorporates multiple performance enhancing features that set it apart from the competition and increase its utility on the jobsite and in the fleet. The IC-280-A is the first Broderson product that includes telematics as standard equipment.

The crane features a class leading 64’ 5” (19,6m) four-section, full power boom, a compact boom head, and a 20-foot boom extension that offsets at 0, 15, and 30 degrees. The maximum sheave height with the boom extension is 88’ 9” (27m). A 2-speed hoist with 12,500 lb bare drum line pull with a maximum line speed of 186 feet per minute maintains good hook speed when multi-part reeving is used on the crane. All hydraulic functions are controlled through precise and reliable direct operated hydraulic controls.

Broderson has added a 3rd - (mid-extension) position to the out-and-down outriggers which enable more setup flexibility and better utilization of the crane capacity in tight workspaces. Removable 11-inch diameter nylon outrigger shoes are standard and 20-inch diameter shoes are optional when a lower outrigger ground bearing pressure is needed.

Cummins 120HP QSF3.8, US EPA Tier 4F diesel or GM 5.7L V8 LPG are the engine options for the crane; a global diesel engine option will be available in 2021. Four-wheel steer/2-wheel drive (4x2) is the standard drive configuration and four-wheel drive/four-wheel steer (4x4) is optional. The engine coupled with a 4-speed powershift transmission provides superior travel performance: maximum travel speed of 18 mph, maximum drawbar pull of 18,100 lbs, and maximum calculated gradeability of 64%.

With the newly integrated telematics, owners will be able to access location, operating hours, utilization, engine and maintenance information through both online and mobile platforms.

An extensive list of optional equipment is available for this crane. The most popular are: non-marking tires, auxiliary chassis mounted 10,000 lb line pull winch, front and rear pintle hooks, lighting packages with work lights and strobe lights, searcher hook, and a 3-color RCL light bar.
