The R-H029 sifter droid was a model of gray-colored, fifth-degree sifter droid equipped with a sand vacuum-head. It stood taller than a fully grown human and moved about on four ambulatory struts. One such droid worked at the Resistance base on the planet D'Qar during the Resistance's conflict with the First Order. It was set up close to the landing site of the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon during the final preparation for the Resistance's attack on the First Order's Starkiller Base superweapon.
