The 4" grinder with a cutoff wheel is what you need. The sawzall will be pretty much useless in doing that work. Please be very careful with the cutoff wheels and don't scimp on quality, buy the good ones (Milwaukee, Metabo, etc.) to name a couple. I have seen some cheap ones shatter and they're like a grenade when they do. Use all the proper safety equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses with a face shield, long sleeves (preferably welding sleeves) and good leather gloves. It just takes a split second to go from cutting metal to cutting bone if you're not careful. If used properly, the cutoff wheel on your grinder will be one of the best tools you can own but can also be one of the most dangerous. I use them almost everyday.
