MAX Grapples

Nye MAX grapples are designed for high capacity MSW (municipal solid waste) handling and for the most severe duty brush clearing applications.
Custom solid tine configurations available to provide high performance material handling in any environment.
Weld-on replaceable AR400 tine tips ensure high reliability and longer attachment life. The welded tips cannot fall off and damage down-stream processing equipment.
Engineered for maximum capacity, MAX grapples offer superior high speed bailing of large bulk loads. All quenched and tempered construction keeps weight down improving swing times and fuel efficiency.
Easy to install, safe and silent to operate MAX grapples are available in pin-on, quick coupler or pin-grabber compatible versions.

Rotating Log Grapples

Nye RHG rotating hydraulic log grapples are designed for production log loading under severe working conditions. The RHG series feature a super tough body structure with over-size pins & bushings that can take extreme pounding and prying. The wide tine openings allow easy, high-speed loading and placing of heavy logs.
Heavy-wall tubes tie the jaws together to prevent twisting and racking of the structure. Guarded high-pressure hydraulic cylinders provide ample clamping force under all working conditions. Full hydraulic tine-synchronization means no troublesome linkages or bell-cranks, the virtually indestructible divider/combiner valve keeps both tines in sync at all times.
Our heavy-duty rotators feature 3600 continuous rotation with oversized bearings and drive motors.
All RHG grapples are custom built to suit your excavator.
Direct pin-on or Quick Coupler versions are available to suit virtually any heavy-duty logging application.

Thumbs – progressive-link

Nye PT1 Progressive Link (pro-link) weld-on thumbs feature a unique single unit design, manufactured for quick and easy installation.
Heavy-duty biomimetic teeth, with serrations for extra grip, are welded solid to the base edge. The teeth mesh perfectly with your bucket because all Nye thumbs are custom built to suit your existing bucket and tooth arrangement.
The fully independent thumb linkage group is engineered to achieve 160° rotation. A simplified one-piece baseplate design means installation does not require disassembling or altering the factory pins or linkages.
Nye PT1 series pro-link thumbs are strong and versatile, built with quenched and tempered alloy steel to provide years of dependable service in the most demanding forestry and demolition applications.
Every Nye thumb is built to order so you get exactly the equipment you need – custom configurations are available to suit any application.

Garbage Shear

Nye GSX Garbage shears are designed to cut Municipal Solid Waste into fine pieces for hi-density packing into trucks, saving transport costs and space in landfills over time. The GSX series features jaws with biomimetic teeth that bypass in shear, providing the right solution for mass waste handling and processing in limited spaces. The main frame is built to last with QT100 quenched and tempered steel plate and AR500 in critical wear areas. Heavy wall torque tubes tie the jaws together and prevent twisting and racking of the structure. Oversize pivot pins and bushings ensure durability and long life. The optional high-pressure brace cylinder with rod guard allows optimum jaw positioning under all working conditions. Direct pin-on or Quick Coupler versions are available to suit virtually any heavy duty MSW application.

Loader Grab Forks

Nye GF Loader Forks were originally designed for loading large dimensional stone in quarries. The GF series feature heavy-duty, pin replaceable “blade” forks with fully tapered tips. The main frame is built to last with QT100 quenched and tempered steel plate and AR400 in critical wear areas. Heavy torque tubes tie the tines together and prevent twisting and racking of the structure. The top grabs are hydraulically operated by top mounted double acting cylinders that enable the secure handling of even the largest stone pieces. Oversize pivot pins and bushings ensure durability and long life. Direct pin-on or Quick Coupler mounting options. Custom versions are available to suit virtually any application.

Excavator Forks

Nye EXF Excavator Forks feature a simple and cost effective design that quickly enables an excavator to lift palletised materials. The solid fabricated box section forms a super strong structure that sits flat on the ground when unattached. The honey comb perforated plate lightens the fork assembly and allows for extra visibility of the load.
The EXF series are specially useful for budget limited contractors to quickly repurpose one machine on site.
Extra thick, heavy duty flat forks ensure years of reliability and dependability.
Contoured and machined fork tips ensure easier slide for lifting and placement on uneven surfaces.
Pin-on, Quick Coupler, and Pin-Grabber versions are available.

Skid Crusher

Nye SKD heavy-duty Skid Crusher grapples are built to sort, load, crush/compact wooden skids and demolition debris.

SKD crusher grapples feature a serrated structural tine design. The solid AR400 tines extend all the way from the tips to the hinge group forming super strong structure and are designed to provide extreme wear and impact resistance. Triple heavy-duty torque tubes resolve bending and twisting forces and keep the tines spaced for optimum crushing.

The tines are profiled with biomimetic teeth that effectively smash skids and debris into splinters. Extra thick AR400 tips provide long life and are easy to replace when needed. The tips are welded-on so they can not fall-off and damage down stream equipment.

Heavy-duty, long stroke cylinders provide smooth independent tine motion and extreme crushing forces for snapping wood and compacting materials.  Optional cylinder rod guards are available.

Pin-on, Quick Coupler, Pin-Grabber and free-swinging versions are available. One auxiliary hydraulic circuit operates the cylinders. No weld-on stick bracket is required.

GP Buckets

General Purpose – buckets are designed for normal digging conditions including light shale and rock. These buckets are heavier than most OEM buckets and are considered heavy-duty by most in the industry.

UHD Buckets

Ultra Heavy-Duty – These are the heaviest rock and demolition buckets we make. Originally designed in the 80’s for the most demanding shot-rock applications in Newfoundland and Northern Ontario. When you need extreme strength and wear resistance, specify Nye UHD.

T-Rex Pulverizers

The Nye “T-Rex Pulverizer” is a new type of secondary concrete processor. It was engineered by using an approach to design called “Biomimetics“.

Nye’s engineers studied the mechanics of how carnivores crush solid bone with their teeth and they coupled that with their extensive knowledge in the demolition industry to come up with the “T-Rex”.

The lower and upper meshing and replaceable incisors intersect tip to tip. This provides a fine point of pick-up for smaller items, like bits of re-bar that tend to contaminate the concrete pile.

The hydraulic brace gives operators the choice to articulate the lower jaw, allowing the pulverizer to be positioned in numerous configurations. The rod on the hydraulic brace is protected from falling debris by a sliding rod guard that was developed specifically for this application.

Applications

The T-Rex has multiple uses on a job site. It includes, but is not limited to, precision picking and sorting of reclaimable materials, using it as a shovel to dig through debris piles, and separating reinforcing rod from concrete demolition debris.

Construction

Custom fabricated with 120,000 psi quenched & tempered steel plate, hardened pins and aluminum bronze bushings throughout.
