A man can pull a railroad train car on level tracks ... the issue is force necessary to overcome friction. If the crashed spaceship can be lifted with an air cushion or grav plate to generate no drag, then it requires very little strength. If a 1000 dTon Starship crashed on itís belly and is being dragged across the ground like a house, then the force required is almost unimaginable (from a biological/mechanical perspective). If it has wheels, then it falls between those two extremes.

So do you have more details on exactly what you propose?
