I need to cut a steel pole. It is the pole of an inground basketball goal. It is currently standing up and anchored with concrete to the ground. I am totally clueless about metal cutting.
Is it possible to "saw off" the pole near its base ? If yes, what type of saw or cutting tool do I need to use ? Any advice on how to go about it ?
For background, this is an old and broken goal installed by the previous owner of the house. It is just outside our fence, on the back alley. This morning a city inspector knocked on our door and asked that it be removed immediately, since some big trucks are having problems going through the alley.
Another option would be to break the concrete base where it is anchored. But that seems to me like even a bigger and more complex job.
