Sure you can. How big is it? My 1-1/8" Crosby shackle cost $70. I wouldn't cut that if I can avoid it. We'll see this week. *grin*

Have you tried spraying it with something like PB Blaster and wrapping it in newspaper and plastic wrap for a couple of days? Hit it with a hammer and heat up the bow of the shackle. A crowbar and a big pipe wrench for leverage and you should be able to break it free.

Holding the shackle steady to cut through it will be just as big a pain.

Good luck.
