MIAMI, OK.--- The Miami Public Works Department has a new slope mower. It runs on tracks that helps keep it from tipping over when it mows grass on hills and embankments. An operator wears the remote like a belt and he manuevers the device similar to a joystick on a video game. Workers say many people have pulled up on the side of the road and asked where they can buy one. 

"They would actually love to sit around in their recliner, and from the front room, and mow their yard with this," said James Tallman, Miami Parks.

The mower costs $60,000.
