You could use an angle grinder, too. A hacksaw or sawsall probably could work, too. The trick is seperating the yoke from the tube, without really cutting the yoke.
Basically its kinda like this: The yellow is the tube, the green is the yoke, the red is the weld. You want to cut the red, without cutting through the green.
I use the chop saw because its easier to fix the saw and turn the work, rather than fix the work and move the saw around. You could probably clamp a grinder into a large vice. Grinder/abrasive blades work well because welds are usually very hard and eat up toothed blades, in my experience.
