Hypro 6500 Series 6-Roller Pump. Includes 6500C, 6500N, and 6500XL pumps. Three housings available: Cast iron (C), Ni-Resist (N), or Round-Up®-ready (XL).
The C version of the Hypro 6500 Roller Pump is recommended if you are only going to pump water. The C can be used in agricultural applications for pumping chemical like herbicide. For longer life you can switch to the N or XL versions. Wettable powders will shorten the life of the rollers because of the increased friction. Parts and repair kits are available from Rittenhouse (see Related Products).

In all machines with moving parts, some frictional wear is inevitable. This is no exception with the high-quality pumps manufactured by Hypro, especially under heavy use by professionals. Therefore, we recommend purchasing a repair kit for this pump at the same time you purchase the pump (6500COMBO) so that you have it on hand when, and if you need it.
If you are experiencing declining performance with your Hypro 6500, it may be time to replace your rollers. Rittenhouse recommends the 6500 Repair Kit in Related Products. You can easily rebuild your Hypro 6500 Roller Pump, it is not very difficult. See Related Products for the repair kit.
You will need a reverse rotation version of the 6500 if you are driving it with a gas engine and you are pointing the shafts directly at each other. These pumps are designed for a tractor PTO which turns in the opposite sense to that of a gas engine.
