Broderson unveils battery electric carry-deck

The 9-ton capacity ICe-80 is a zero emission version of the popular Broderson IC-80 crane.

Broderson Manufacturing Corp will be introducing its first battery electric powered, zero emissions industrial carry deck crane at ConExpo 2023 in Las Vegas, NV. The 9-ton capacity ICe-80 is a zero emission version of the popular Broderson IC-80 crane, which has long been offered in diesel and dual-fuel configurations, the company said.

The current diesel or dual fuel power plant and mechanical transmission are replaced with a 700 VDC lithium ion battery pack and permanent magnet synchronous motors and inverters to power the drive and hydraulic systems. The battery package is the Lyra Series 30 platform that is designed and manufactured by U.S.-based class 5 through 8 electric truck manufacturer Xos. The motor and inverter package is from the Rexroth eLION product offering that is designed for and proven in off-highway applications.

The 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel steer crane is designed for a standard crane operation duty-cycle of 8 hours and has a maximum driving speed of 17 miles per hour. The axles, boom, hoist, outrigger system and LMI system are shared with the standard IC-80 to allow for common parts stocking and maintenance of these components. Broderson Manufacturing is planning to begin production deliveries of the ICe-80 later in 2023.
