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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Nye “Pin-On” thumbs pivot directly on the bucket (or coupler) pin. This allows the tines to follow the bucket teeth and stay coincident at all angles. Pin-on thumbs work well with both conventional and pin grabber style quick couplers. Buckets and attachments can be changed using the coupler, saving the need to pull the main pin each time.
All Nye pin-on thumbs come with a case-hardened alloy main pin, heavy-duty hydraulic cylinder, and mounting bracket (optional high pressure cylinder available). Nye also builds progressive link, integral, and special purpose thumbs.
Nye Integral Thumbs are hinged directly on the bucket so they come off clean when the bucket is uncoupled. Excellent for loading demolition debris, wood waste, armor stone, etc. Designed to work with most quick couplers, the Integral Thumb stays with the bucket at all times. This allows other attachments to be coupled without interference from the thumb. The Integral Thumb cylinder and bracket can be used with some other attachments like Grapples or Stump Harvesters.
