About Stinger Drives

Stinger Drives Incorporated
Founded in 1995 By Bruce Kaye

Owned and Operated By Sharon Kaye

Bruce Kaye had more than just a passion for building and designing. He would create tools himself for his shop, as well as re-power dump trucks for his trucking business with big block engines. This is where Bruce really began tinkering with gears, his real knack.

Bruce took what he learned from re-gearng heavy duty trucks and started applying it to airboats, which at the time didn't have many gear reduction options on the market. The K-Way was his first production gearbox and many are still in service today.

Meet Sharon Kaye, President of Stinger Drives.

In 2001, Bruce's youngest daughter, Sharon, began officially working at Stinger Drives and has been carefully building gearboxes ever since.

For her first 7 years she worked side by side with Bruce learning every aspect of the business and together they refined Stinger gearboxes into the reliable and reputable product that is still produced today.

In 2008 Sharon took ownership of Stinger Drives and has been running it at full throttle ever since.

Especially when she's in her air boat!
