On A tower leg in tension, an angle grinder or circular saw would be  about 
the most dangerous tools available for the job. Both are unstable and tend  
to hard to control. They have a very dangerous tendency to jump in the 
direction  opposite the rotation. On the angle grinder, the grinding disks are 
prone to  catastrophic failure if pinched between the cut edges. I don't 
think I need to  mention the flying shards of metal from cutting metal with a 
circular saw.
Grinders are for grinding.
Circular saws are for wood.
Reciprocating saws are for trashing about anything safely.
