A Landspeeder is a popular vehicle in the Star Wars universe used for ground transportation. It hovers very low above ground and can travel and reasonably high speeds. Luke Skywalker used an X-34 landspeeder as his primary mode of transportation before he met Hans Solo and Chewbacca. Luke and his droid companion C-3PO travelled from Lars to Jundland Wastes in his landspeeder to search for R2-D2, and then later to Mos Eisley with the two droids and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
While at Mos Eisley, Luke sells his landspeeder for 2,000 credits to hire Hans and Chewy to fly them to Alderaan on Han's Millenium Falcon. Their charter with Hans and Chewy marked the beginning of their friendship and the battles they would face together.
