Konrad Marine Offers Technical Training Classes 

HUDSON, WI - Konrad Marine, the company known around the world for their highly dependable stern drives, believes in service after the sale. Konrad offers 3-day technical training classes to customers. Classes cover everything from the service tools and their uses to how the stern drive is designed to work, to general stern drive maintenance.


The classes are conducted in Hudson, WI, at the Konrad facility. Students spend some time in a classroom but are mainly on the floor of the machine shop where Konrad’s 520 and 540 stern drives are produced. Students participate in hands-on procedures such as upper and lower gear housing disassembly and reassembly, to transom bearing carrier assembly and trim cylinder operating and assembly. Also included is trim system assembly, power steering system overview, plus propellers and drive shaft types and their correct use per certain applications.

At the end of class, students evaluate the training and critique the course and instructors. Konrad reports the high majority of evaluators state “Very Satisfied” overall with the course. Other positive comments include learning what to look for in a damaged upper gear housing, learning to shim the pinion gear or simply seeing how everything works as a complete unit, taught them a lot.


Konrad schedules two technical training classes per year. In 2005, these classes will be held April 18, 19, 20, and again October 17, 18 and 19. Additional classes will be considered if the requests continue to increase.
