Special / Misc. Excavator Buckets

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.

Slab Buckets

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.

Ripper Buckets

Nye Ripper Buckets have earned a reputation for extreme service in hard shale. We have perfected the ripper bucket in terms of profile and tooth position for larger machines . These buckets consistently outperform “V” type buckets of all makes, allowing the operator to rip and load in one operation.

If you are working in shale you need a Nye Ripper Bucket.

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.

HP Buckets

Nye HP (High Performance) buckets are designed to boost production. Nye HP buckets are built with thinner, stronger heat-treated alloy steels so they are very light, allowing faster cycle times. Designed specifically for basement contractors working in light to moderate conditions.

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.
