If you haven't tried this, spray some Liquid Wrench or PB Blaster and allow that to soak in. If you have a 6 point hex socket the correct size, try using that with a breaker bar for the socket handle. The 6 point socket is better to prevent rounding the nut if it is that hard to take off. If needed , use a length of cast iron water pipe to give you more leverage and torque. Gradually applying the torque required to loosen a stuck nut this way may help to prevent rounding the corners as well. If they are already too rounded, there are specialty sockets that are designed so that the face of the bolt rather than the points take the torque, thus preventing the bolt from being totally ruined. If that happens, there is always the pipe wrench to try. Good luck
