An angle grinder does a quick job,too---but clearance to cut can be a problem.
Where do you think i could rent one? Do you think HD rents them?

the best snapper to use is a ridgid 226 but the snap wheels need about 11/4 inches of clearance around pipe then rap around and wrench until it pops will sound like a bag being popped if you do not have the clearance it is messy but take a grinder cut as deep as grinder will go in two spots perpendicular to the pipe with a gap between them large enough to get head of grinder between them then cut parallel to pipe remove that piece then grind rest out from inside of pipe rest of the way around we also use a shop vac with wand by grinder to help with dust i have used abrasive and diamond wheel blades i like the diamond myself
