Replacement cooling fan's

My cooling fan is fried. Which I found out while on a trail in alaska towing trailer for a friend. When my Rhino started overheating when all was said and done I only had 1/4 of my coolant left. luckly I found a clear and clean stream to fill the radiator with. Now I am wondering is there a aftermarket fan that I can used? I figure that there has to be a fan that is being used for a transmission cooler or something out there. I did a quick to see what a new one would cost and I am really not wanting to spend the $200+ on a fan that I dont use that much. Normal that air flow through the radiator is enough.

So, does any one know of an aftermarket or replacement fan that works on a rhino?

Sorry for the late response.

I ended up using a 10 fan from summitracing sum-G4901. I had to remove the quick connect from the old fan and attach it to the new fan. I am not a big fan of hacking OEM wiring harnesses. I had to drill holes in the radiator mounting tap so I could use the factory mounting hardware. It helps if you remove the radiator to facilitate this process. Took about 2hrs and a total cost was about $60. hope that helps
