Rust on the Brake Bands, hook line to a stump and with the control in release pull it out with machine, you may need to do it several times, just usage will generaly clear it up. You may also find that after the brake band loosens up the drum will continue to wind in, that'll be rust on the clutches, my clear up with use, worse case remove the side cover and remove the bands and clutches and clean the rust off with some fine grit sandpaper.
