    I have a 425 tracked dingo that isn't moving. engine is fine, left side track moves but right one acts stuck. it will go in forward and reverse a couple inches then stop. I was thinking the brake is stuck on that side. Looking for any other suggestions to look for that may be causing it. Thanks in advance,

    Have you tried jacking it up and see if it will move? Have you opened the bypass valve and see can you move the track manually?
    It sounds like ya got something jammed in the track or at the parking brake lug.

    Would look at the brake bars by the sprockets, mine has a tendancy to stick. Easier to try to push the bars in than jack up machine. Look for the easy fix first.

    yep it was the parking brake. Barely out too far on the right side. a couple taps and it's back in moving fine. Thanks for the replies.
