Throw "Chain cutter" in there and it will come up the same also.

If you dont want to snap it, you could use an angle grinder with a cut off wheel. I know you said you want to save the hub and use a donut. I've found the donuts and the quicktite gaskets to be more of a PIA than I want to deal with. Personally, I'd rather get rid of the hub and use a fernco, but to each their own. Either way is fine. Just remember, you dont just have the lead to deal with, there is also oakum in the hub and it is tightly caulked in there. You can drill out the lead then work a screwdriver into the hub and get the oakum out a few strands at a time or you might get lucky, have it tangle itself on your drill bit and be able to yank big pieces of it out. Good luck!

idk if a fernco will work. the pipe is still pretty dirty, but it looks to be rusted enough to be very bumpy. idk if a fernco would seal that.

That's why I use the gasket sometimes. It can be a pain either way. Both methods have their merits

yeah, i have a angle grinder.

you know, i hadn't though about how hard the lead and oakum would come out of the hub. i just don't know how the stuff is installed. so its hard for me to figure on how to get it out.

Yes indeed you could excavate to allow a cast iron cutter chain to fit around a straight section of pipe, but you have to get it nice and square or your cut will be fairly rough.
Or, you could use an angle grinder and metal cutoff wheels and a faceshield and safety glasses and cut around the exposed area and make a couple of perpendicular cuts to remove the face then cut the back half out from the inside. A bit more time consuming but a couple buck for a cheap 4.5 inch grinder and another few for cutting wheels and your good to go.

Or and some may scoff, but twisting the y around the axis of the run while wiggling it will loosen the y enough to remove it from the hub below it. The joint is mainly okum sealed with a thin cap of lead over the top. Lead is a very maleable metal and will reshape as it is forced. By taking a piece of lumber, corners chamfered to fit into the verticle riser, and rotating it around the axis of the run of the fitting will break the seal and loosen it. I have been able to remove the lead just from twisting and rocking the fitting to compress it. Think back to using split shot when fishing as a kid and teeth were the tool for the lead split shot. It is soft stuff. Getting the okum out takes a very strong 90 degree tipped pick. Something like a machinists scribe. Not a lot of clearance. My tools have ranged from a large pipe wrench to a baseball bat for my cheater bar, even an old piece of steel 2 inch pipe. If there is a place inline with the run of the pipe to attach a cumalong, allowing you to apply force in the direction of removal as you rock and rotate it, it will make short work of things.
Unconventional but beats the hell out of breaking out more concrete. It leaves you with a good hub to install a doughnut into and a 45 degree street L that gives you a clean socket to continue on with. If 45 street L is too short for the doughnut use a regular 45 and nipple and go from there. If you are going to pour a new floor seriously consider pex in the floor for heating the space. Heats from 6 foot down as opposed to 6 feet up and it is the perfect opportunity to do this.
OOPS, SHOULD HAVE READ WHOLE THREAD, EXCUSE AMWAH. still pulling it out works, I've done it

project begins this afternoon. i have $400 in plumbing(i always buy way more than i need, and pieces i think i don't need. that way, i HOPE i have what i need and don't have to stop and run back the the store.) and 3 2x8's.
plans a b c d e f g & h are in order. i have 2 days. but i am hoping i can get it done before tonights movie, EXPENDABLES 2. thats when the beer comes into play. if i don't have to replace the toilet flange, i think i will be good. while pulling the crapper is not a big deal, idk what is under there.

We used to call them Snappers

Joe, why do you use them for chairs? No Saw?
