If it is the track you may need to take that track off to get enough motion to work it free just by flexing and bending. It might be a final drive or clutch that is stuck and that is a little more work. When trying to move the tractor, carefully watch to see what is offering to move and what is not. Also sometimes when trying to move crawlers, they will move backward better than forward.

One more thing to try is pulling directly on the track that does not want to move. You get incredible force and torque doing this so good judgment is needed. Just hook to a track pad and pull straight over the top of the track. You won't be able to go far at a time but it might get it moving.
