Loader Buckets

Nye builds a wide variety of custom loader attachments. Our loader buckets are built to order so you always get the correct bucket for your application.

Limestone Buckets

Nye super heavy LSB series limestone buckets feature a new concept in easy to service “cleaver” cutting edges. These advanced “full convex” edges stay sharp longer than regular blades and are easy to service in the field thanks to the innovative blade clamping system.

A sharp cutting edge is crucial for splitting and separating layers of sedimentary rock. Conventional welded cutting edges with flame cut bevels tend to dull quickly, impacting performance and production. Changing a welded cutting edge is costly and time consuming, requiring special skills and equipment plus extended machine down time.

Nye’s new clamp in cutting edge system solves the dull-edge problem. The edges can be flipped or changed on site quickly by one man with a socket wrench, no welding or special tools required. The blade is in two pieces, so you can flip the blades and get four corners to wear instead of two giving twice the blade life and twice the production.

Advanced edge geometry – AR500 material with CNC machined “Full Convex” profiles make LSB edges stronger and longer lasting than flame-cut bevel or compound bevel cutting edges. The replacement blades are sophisticated, yet simple in design so replacement cost is minimal.

The bucket body is made with extra thick solid steel plate. The LSB850 has 100mm [4”] thick sides, top plate, basket and eyes plus 180mm [7”] thick laminated AR400 bottom. This extreme mass makes pounding seams and splitting rock easy.

With a heavy bucket and sharp edge the operator can separate layers of rock easily by pounding the cutting edge into seams and cracks. The mass of the bucket does the work, not the excavator, like a man using a sledge hammer delivering powerful blows with no injury to himself.


Nye builds custom heavy-duty excavator jibs for a wide variety dredging, demolition and high-reach applications.

Nye jibs pin-on in place of your bucket and increase the reach of your excavator. For most applications, Nye recommends direct pin-on mounting with increased pin centers for durability and improved digging forces. Standard center distances are offered where Pin-Grabber mounting is required.

Standard bucket linkages and cylinders are available and are usually one size class smaller than the base machine depending on jib length and application.

All Nye Jibs are built with QT100 structural steel for maximum strength and minimum weight.

HD Buckets

Heavy-Duty – buckets are built with extra thick materials in all wear areas and are designed for severe rock and shale applications where extra impact and abrasion resistance is required.

Excavator Rippers

Nye has likely built more custom rippers for different machines than any other attachment manufacturer. Our virtually unbreakable rippers are available with various shank lengths and tooth configurations. Our patented Swing-Tooth ripper is excellent for trenching in shale and frozen ground, the shank is self-locking and requires no hydraulics. The “MOAR” is a new weighted ripper concept designed to increase penetration.

Excavator Arms (Sticks)

At Nye, we design, build, modify and repair more types of excavator boom systems than any other manufacturer.

We use only the finest quality QT100 steel plate, low hydrogen flux-core welding wire and hardened alloy pins & bushings.

Concrete Pulverizers

Experience has taught us how to build the strongest, most durable concrete pulverizer available today. The Nye CP4 series pulverizer represents our ninth generation design, built without compromise using the highest quality materials and workmanship. Every Nye CP4 series pulverizer is built with three different grades of quenched and tempered alloy steel for the ultimate combination of strength, toughness and wear resistance. Our solid AR500 teeth are welded in so they can’t fall out and jam your crusher. Our patented ripper option features a 4 position ripper shank for sorting, prying, ripping and flipping slabs.
