Replace drain grate

I'm trying to replace this grate for the drain in my utility room, but can't get it to budge. Any tips? I'm not even sure how it's fastened.

Sometimes there will be a pair of flat head machine screws but in in your case I think it is mostly held by old man rust. An old screwdriver and hammer might break it loose.

Step one would be to remove some of the rust with a wire brush or wire wheel in a drill motor. Be sure to use eye protection and a dust mask if using power tools.
