Defying Maintenance – Commanding Performance
All vital mechanics and components are situated inboard away from the harmful elements. Bearings bushes and seals for propeller shaft and all external steering mechanisms are long life, maintenance free water lubricated, so no regular maintenance or additional lubrication of these external parts are needed. The thrust bearings are oil lubricated and water cooled on the QSD120, QSD125 and QSD130 models. The QSD102 is a low power version so does not required cooling. Exhaust is also accommodated for on all models with optional flange fittings. Steering is managed by way of standard marine steering gear attached to the inboard tiller. All QSD drives are supplied with intermediate shaft and Q-SPD specified custom designed propeller as standard thus completing the full propulsion solution.

As with all Q-SPD drives, the new QSD1 follows a unique manufacturing process that assures absolute perfection in all aspects of the build and thus the assurance of the top quality and workmanship. Only top quality marine friendly products are used in all components. No compromises are accepted. This philosophy is how we assure that the maximum reliability and longevity is achieved, no matter what the application. In short we are in the business of making lasting products, not products that will need ongoing and continue maintenance that incurs unnecessary and regular cost to the owner.
