LINDEN PROPELLER. Gary Linden started Linden Propeller in 1983 at a time when Dubuque's economy was near bottom. With push-button hydraulics, the company repaired propellers of all kinds from fishing boats to luxury yachts.

In 2013 the company announced its Prop Press 500 which was able to handle propellers up to fifty inches in diameter. In March 2013 the company announced that its sales--machines costing from $84,000-$100,000--had been made to businesses across the United States, Bermuda and Croatia.
