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.
Nye Slinger Buckets are engineered to provide controlled side discharge on either side of the machine.
Dual reversible direct drive hydraulic motors are side mounted for easy accessibility and maintenance.
Both motors are fully adjustable to provide easy tensioning of the conveyor belt and hydraulic motors.
Nye exclusive dual direct drive hydraulic motors eliminate jamming, slipping and cogging.
SSB buckets spread materials left or right, and with an optional ejection chute cover, the operator can effectively control the drop of light materials in tight spaces.
Side sling buckets feature a replaceable heavy-duty conveyor belt with fully adjustable edge guides for consistent flow with a variety of materials.
Nye Skeleton Buckets are engineered using abrasion resistant and high strength materials to withstand the most severe service.
Design types are available with perforated baskets or interlocked ribs and cross bars that meet the most demanding custom material separation applications.
Both designs do not contain any moving parts and exceed OEM specs.
Tapered vertically and horizontally along with a dual compounded radii profile, SRE buckets allow for easy filling and dumping effectively reducing bottom wear.
Skeleton Buckets are available in various sizes, widths, and custom rib spacing configurations along with customers’ choice of ground engaging tools.
Nye SDB Side Dump Bucket double as a conventional or lateral dumping bucket and is designed to outperform in hard to maneuver work sites. The main boxed frame is built to last with QT100 quenched and tempered steel plate and AR500 in critical wear areas. Heavy torque plates and heavy walled bushings tie the pivot together and prevent twisting and racking of the structure. Oversize pivot pins and bushings ensure durability and long life.
The single high-pressure cylinder with casing guard allows for optimum bucket positioning and controlled dumping under all working conditions.
Direct pin-on or Quick Coupler versions are available to suit virtually any machine.
Bucket base edge can be equipped with weld-on repointer, bolt-on segments or teeth.
Over-the-bucket forks are also available.
Nye LS1 Loader mounted front scoop bucket.
The Nye scoop bucket makes it easy to transfer back fill material from the stock pile to an excavator bucket. The excavator can then distribute the material in the trench as required.
The Nye scoop bucket outperforms and eliminates the need for a side dump bucket for back-filling.
Flat bottom design reduces stockpile waste (easier cleanup)
Nye scoop buckets are available in a variety of width and capacity configurations.
Direct pin-on and QC versions available.
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.
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.
Nye tilt units have evolved alongside our tilt buckets. Our latest designs now feature 90 degrees of total rotation and the same heavy-duty double acting cylinders and hardened alloy pivot group as found in our long lasting tilt buckets.
Nye Tilting Ditch Buckets have been continually improving over the last four decades. Our latest designs now feature a super strong one-piece QT100 front beam and twin double-acting hydraulic cylinders mounted low on the back where they belong, not on top or inside a compartment. Most models feature bolt-on edges and an onboard hydraulic control valve that provides load holding / relieving, speed control, and hose management functions.
Nye standard “Weld-On” thumbs are supplied as a single unit that welds to the bottom plate of the excavator arm. This type of thumb is the simplest to install and the most common. The tips of the tines will be coincident with the bucket teeth at the normal operating position allowing the operator to pick up small items. Available with a rigid mechanical brace or hydraulic cylinder.
