How to break up old concrete laundry sink???

Anyone have an idea how I can break up an old concrete laundry sink? This think must weigh 900 pounds, and the only way I am gonna get it up the basement stairs is if I break it up...

The only problem is that it seems to be made of concrete covered steel or iron...

Any ideas on what I could do?

Would some sort of masonry saw be able to cut through the thin layer of metal in the middle along with both the inner and outer layer of concrete?

If it is cast iron covered with concrete, you should be able to bust it all up with a sledge hammer.
If it is a steel tub sink with concrete, you'll have to cut it.
I think that I would rent one of those concrete pavement cutting saws, whack it up with it, and go from there.
Should do the trick.
Good luck!
