Mantis Buckets

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.

Garbage Shear

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.

Loader Grab Forks

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.

Excavator Forks

Nye EXF Excavator Forks feature a simple and cost effective design that quickly enables an excavator to lift palletised materials. The solid fabricated box section forms a super strong structure that sits flat on the ground when unattached. The honey comb perforated plate lightens the fork assembly and allows for extra visibility of the load.
The EXF series are specially useful for budget limited contractors to quickly repurpose one machine on site.
Extra thick, heavy duty flat forks ensure years of reliability and dependability.
Contoured and machined fork tips ensure easier slide for lifting and placement on uneven surfaces.
Pin-on, Quick Coupler, and Pin-Grabber versions are available.
