I have the same machine, the brakes work but you have to put some serious beef on the petal, and I've only used it on flat ground.

If i was on my feet i believe that i would come up with a kit to put disk brakes on all the older skidders.

If you know where theres a S8, IH take a look at the brake system. They have a rotor and caliper on the back of the tran. Then theres another rotor and caliper off the rear end under the winch. The S8 well stop on dime, and give you 9 cents in change. The emergency brake worked off the rotor on the tran, but you set it mechanically, by hand, the skidder wouldn't move until you released it.
 Try find a junk one to get the parts off of.
