The Metalorn Garbage Crane was a type of crane that was used on the planet Metalorn by the Techno Union to sort trash from the garbage and the junk in The Wasteland of Metalorn. The trash would later be taken away by the Metalorn garbage speeders to an unknown area.
The garbage crane had four wheels which it used to move around on, and had a spare wheel attached to its back in case one of the wheels broke. The crane, like most other cranes, had a claw like arm which it used to grab objects and place them somewhere else. The vehicle also sported the Metalorn crest on both its sides. The crane was painted yellow, and had room for just one driver towards the front on the vehicle, and had no room for any passengers.
In 19 BBY Bail Organa traveled to Metalorn to tour the world and find out how the operations on the planet were run. Earlier, Bail had duped the foreman of the Techno Union, Wat Tambor, into thinking that Alderaan wanted to join the Confederacy of Independent Systems, as well as telling him that he wanted to convert Alderaan into a factory world like Metalorn, and wanted to receive a tour of the world. In reality he was journeying to Metalorn to free the imprisoned Jedi Master, Shaak Ti, who had been captured by the Techno Union. During the tour, Bail and company witnessed the Metalorn garbage cranes hard at work in Wasteland of Metalorn.
