How about hiring a guy with a torch to cut it?
Hi, I am pulling my hair right now. I have a 3-4 inch thick cast iron boiler taking up a lot of needed space in my basement area and I want it out!!! We have managed to get the sections broke apart , but the 4th section (about 20 inches in height)is so large that I know we will not be able to get it out of the doorway without breaking it. The sectioned parts are so heavy that I will have to have at least 3-4 big men to take it out. If anyone has any suggestions, besides a sledge, sawzall, (have tried these methods) please let me know. Every time we hit it, it slides closer and closer to my water heater and I am afraid it's going to get knocked off of the base and into it. It's quite the disaster and am desperately in need of help. Any suggestions please!
Do you have any idea how long it takes to cut, actually melt, cast iron with a torch? Something it wrong here. A 20" high boilet section should not be that big, and it is not solid metal so it should eventually break with a sledge hammer. Even, a 5' high by 4' wide end section would be heavy, but not impossible to move.
I've always liked using a 4-1/2 inch angle grinder with those thin cutting disks.
I've cut threw I beams and even 1 inch thick steel.

all you need to do is get a large sledje hammer
and break it up into smaller pieces...
It is cast iron so it
should break up .if you smack it hard enough.
