Removing dishwasher


Some genius screwed our old dishwasher to the FLOOR instead of just to the countertop. I'm sure he thought he was doing the right thing, but the screw heads are inaccessible (can't get a handle in between the leg and the cabinetry), one is totally rusted on top, and the leveling feet are screwed in far enough that there isn't enough room to get a hacksaw blade at the screws. Any suggestions? I thought I may have to cut the legs off, but I imagine I would need a reciprocating saw (which I don't have).

Cold steel chisel or a Stanley Wonder bar http://www.stanleytools.com/default....174%3B+Pry+Bar come to mind.

My pry bar is similar to that one, and it's not slim enough to fit into the tiny space under the leg. I'm going with the saw (and some goggles).
