Is this a square iron piece recessed into the concrete? Photos will help.
Is the drain connected to a pipe or is it just a place for water to empty into a dry well?

Why's it need to be cut off?
Willing to bust out the concrete enough to use a Furnco adapter to adapt?

Floor drains usually consist of a drain body that is embedded in the floor and the grate is attached to it. This makes removal next to impossible unless you tear into the floor.

There is a possibility that you have a push on grate and replacements are likely available. But even these may require a slight amount of concrete demo.

I can't give more suggestions without seeing it though.

Why could't you remove the grate using an angle grinder and then use a pvc donut inside the existing cast iron?
