In addition to using the better type of fluid, when a tractor has been sitting a few weeks, go under there and crack the drain plugs loose about 1/2 turn. Any water from condensation will have collected at the low point of each sump. Most of that water will quickly run past the threads. When the water stops dripping, tighten the plugs. Do this before you run the tractor, and get the fluid/water thoroughly mixed. I use the synthetic fluid, so anything that helps extend the life of the fluid is saving time and money. Loosening the plugs more often also does away with the problem of them being completely frozen in place when it's time to actually drain the fluid.
