Iowa Lawn Mower Glides on Water

Updated: Thursday, July 24 2014, 07:44 AM CDT
LAKE VIEW, IA (CBS2/FOX2) – When you think of cutting grass the first thing that likely comes to mind is a lawn mower.
But in Lake View, Iowa, the mower looks a lot different, and the lawn is filled with water.
Workers at black hawk lake are mowing the grass under water.
This machine, called an aquatic vegetation lake harvester, was purchased for $250,000 by the DNR to help clean up what's become a problem.
The machine "mows" about three acres a day.
That's ten hours of mowing -- moving at four miles an hour.
