EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE
Used by: Citizens of Mos Espa
The entire planet's covered with it, but after a Tatooine sandstorm, local merchants and their wares can get buried in sand. To clean up the mess, local beings use a device called an electrostatic sandstat.
The sandstat was built from a GardenVac manufactured by the Flymo company of England. Used in landscape maintenance, the unit is a combination electric blower and vacuum unit.

The GardenVac controls were replaced by a flat panel with 3 white square buttons and other small details. Two large rectangular panels were mounted on top towards the end of the unit. The complete prop was also, of course, completely repainted.
