 John Deere Gator Brakes stick need Special Transmission Fluid

On two different old gators, with the brakes inside the transmission, the transmissions were opened. One to replace brakes, the other for some other reason. The brakes are sticking on both after the transmission has been put back together. I am wondering if there is some sort of additive or something that should be in there so the brakes do not stick? It is especially bad after setting the parking brake. Often in order to unstick the brakes I need to run in reverse a few times before they will free up. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

Transaxle fluid has to conform to J20C specs. Compatability listings are on the side of the fluid container. It is critical that this fluid be in there. I use Traveller from Tractor Supply, it is a little thinner than Deere's and seems to work well. If you have 90wt gear oil in your transaxle, you will have to flush it out.
