Cheap sawzall and some metal blades
4 1/2" Grinder with cut off wheels
That could cut off all the bolt heads

The reason I was asking about a sawzall was the person that erected this shed used a a 2x4 frame nailed to sheet metal. No way to remove all the nails that are involved. Guessing I don't need a grinder in this case? The sheet metal is on the thicker side. It is galvanized corrugated metal. I'm guessing any saw can handle this? Certain type of blade I should use? Will I need many blades? Chainsaw oil to keep the blade cool?

Grinder could cut along the 2x4 edge and make whatever size panels. Then sawzall the frame out. Sawzall can do that also.

Couple bimetal 18 tooth (tpi) multi paks. Maybe muilti pak that has a couple wood blades.

Do you think a grinder would be easier/quicker? I could handsaw the wooden frame fairly easily. I can also borrow a sawzall from work but it is 1980s vintage and in questionable condition. It might saw the frame ok.
