 6x4 brake squeal

we have 6x4 gas gator 480 hours great shape expect for:

brakes squeal and slip real bad....
brake pedal has good pressure, parking brake works OK, fluid in trans/brake assembly looks OK.

John Deere told me $500 for a brake rebuild kit, another $600 + for labor to fix.

any thoughts or advice or do it yourself remedies?

 6x4 brake squeal

Gator wet brakes will always squeel or squeak sooner or later. If you do your 1100.00 brake job it will fix it for awhile, but it will come back. Drive your gator around and pull up the emergency brake off and on and scrub the shoes off. It may take a long time but it will stop squeeling. At that point you can drain your transaxle and refill with Hy-gard fluid. If you don't have JD fluid make sure what you put in is compatable with J20C specs. JD fluid is the best. This helps sometimes and sometimes not. Evidently it doesn't take much contamination to ruin the fluid in the transaxle. I wonder how much of the 600.00 the tech gets for doing the brake job. That's pretty ridiculous.
