Over heating issues

I bought a 2009 rhino 700 and it has been overheating since new.
Warranty is over and blackfoot motor sports has no desire to help.
Any suggestions?

Overheated 2009 rhino 700

Fan comes on, rad is clean, coolant is topped up. During the last ride the rad hose on the drivers side actually collapsed flat when we were topping up coolant, and both rab hoses don't seem to be as rigid as a cars.

The fan really does not cool these things down when running but when stopped. If it is getting hot it is because something is causing it to run hot (i.e Running real hard, hot temps outside, dirty radiator etc..) Flush it out and add engine ice and see if that improves it.
