Nye invented the independent tine grapple bucket over 30 years ago. Our latest EXG series “Mantis” buckets feature twin self-synchronized hydraulic cylinders with tines that fold up and park over-center when not in use. The independent tines by-pass either side of the stick so you get maximum range of motion for uninterrupted digging. Ridged multi-tine versions are available for applications requiring more than two tines.
The easy to service hydraulic cylinders are protected by an integrated Load Control valve which provides load holding and relieving, synchronization, speed control and hose management functions. The cylinders are protected, which means damage due to overload and drift due to leakage is virtually eliminated. Servicing is simple and there are no complex sliding rotary seals or internal splines or gears to grind and smash.
Independent tines conform to odd shaped loads for a secure grip. The tines are tapered and fully boxed QT100 steel for maximum strength and durability. Serrations in the tines provide the right balance of grip without damaging plastic culverts and materials used in road building.
The over-center function gives the tines 180 degrees of rotation without the need for linkages or complex “cuckoo-clock” rotary actuators. With gravity assist, the tines fold-up over the top of the bucket to allow full, uncompromised digging functionality. The bucket profile is not altered by the tines or any bulky actuator mechanism, so you get the best digging bucket with a fully tapered body, dual basket radii and proper wear plates just like a regular bucket.
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.
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.
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 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.
Special Buckets – Years of combined experience and expertise makes Nye a leader in the industry of bucket manufacturing always with the customer in mind. We manufacture buckets and attachments for absolutely all applications. Give us a call and put our dedication and commitment working for you.
All Nye buckets exceed manufacturers’ specifications regardless of class.
Nye Slab Buckets are custom built for all slab removal and handling operations. Custom widths and profiles are available that match the jobsite conditions, so you get the best performing bucket available.
Inside profiles can be round or square for thick slab applications. Serrated teeth on the upper surface of the tines hold slabs in place and reduce slipping.
Nye slab buckets can be equipped with a basic clean base edge, “re-pointer bar” cutting edges or teeth of any type and configuration.
All Nye buckets exceed OEM specifications for strength and toughness. Extra thick AR400 and QT100 steel plates offer maximum strength and durability. Nye Slab buckets are designed to endure pounding and prying that would destroy most competitive brand buckets.
Available in various designs and custom patterns, Nye Slab Buckets can be built for direct pin-on mounting (using OEM bucket pins) or pin grabber compatible, or any type of dedicated quick coupler system.
Nye has a proud reputation of working closely with customers to develop new patterns specifically suited for their application. Every Nye bucket is built to order and designed to properly fit your machine.
