The Sandcrawler is a large, heavy, slow-moving machine. It runs on eight tracks, each powered by a separate steam-powered, nuclear fission engine. Since half the vehicle's volume is devoted to cargo storage, the Sandcrawler is perfect for transporting large amounts of goods across difficult terrain.
Originally designed to transport mining ores on Corellia, the Sandcrawler was later brought to Tatooine when the planet was first settled as a mining colony. However, the ore mined seemed to have unwanted metallurgic properties, so the mines were shut down and the Sandcrawlers discarded. The native Jawas reclaimed the vehicles and used them for scavenging purposes.
