We have a steel girder cemented in as a parking spot market...it is
vertically installed. I would like to cut it off at the ground since
I don't think it's advantageous to dig it up (concrete and
blacktop)...is there a good way to cut this thing at ground level? I
was thinking of getting an angle gringer, but it is thick
steel...probably 1/4 or 3/8" thick...any thoughts? I don't have a
welder or any heavy equipment.

Several options here: rent a torch set, rent a plasma cutter, call an oufit
that has portable equipment and pay therm to do it. Alternatively, a savvy
construction person could probably put a chain around it and yank it out of the
ground with minimal damage. HTH
Sounds like a sawzall job to me. Rent a good one rather than own a
cheap one. Buy several blades, you can return them if you don't use
them. Avoid a torch, cutting right at grade is difficult, blows holes
in concrete, and looks bad for a long time. An angle cutter and weld
cutting disks will work. I own all of the above and a backhoe and would
still use the recip saw.
Keep the whole world singing. . .
