580K brakes sticking

    After the brakes are used a couple of times the right side seams to be sticking. Roaded the machine a half mile everything was fine initially down the last hill in 4th like always. Pushed brush into a pile for maybe 30 minutes, left to put the hoe back in the barn started up the road and it seamed labored. Going down small hill shifted into 4th like always and it started slowing down, started up the hill in a right turn in second gear it would not pull the hill shifted to first made the corner got out to have a look and found the right side of the transaxle smoking a little and dripping fluid. Limped it back to the shop to park it. Today I lifted it up with the outriggers and ran it in all gears, seamed fine so I pushed the brakes a few times after that it took noticeably more pedal to make the wheels turn afterward. Proceeded to run it for about ten minutes in all gears forward and reverse got out and checked the transaxle, right side was noticeably hotter than the left.

    Could it be as easy as a colapsed rubber brake line or something much worse?

    Please help...

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
