Morocco-based Société Chérifienne de Matériel Industriel et Ferroviaire (SCIF) has purchased two Liebherr LTM 1070-4.2 all terrain cranes and an LRT 1100-2.1 rough terrain crane.

For the LRT 1100-2.1 and one of the two LTM 1070-4.2 models, SCIF decided to acquire used machines. Mohamed El Houri, installations director at SCIF, said the used cranes were refurbished at the factory and SCIF is “very impressed with the quality”.

The LRT 1100-2.1 is the first of this model to arrive in Morocco, according to Liebherr. The crane’s off-road handling, pick-and-carry feature, and 50 m-long telescopic boom were major factors behind the purchase, Liebherr said.

The LTM 1070-4.2 also offers a 50 m-long boom. The flexible four-axle cranes will cover around 70 percent of the load cases SCIF has to tackle, according to Liebherr.

Rachid Makboul, sales director at SCIF, said: “We have had some very good experience with our Liebherr LTM 1130-5.1, which we bought in 2016. Its quality and reliability are outstanding. Furthermore, with its branch office in Casablanca, very close to our base, Liebherr provides us with excellent service and fast supplies of spare parts”.
