I've used my Milwaukee heat gun and a pair of needlenose piers up to 1.5 inch SCH 40.

that looks pretty symple. I usually take my recypricating saw and cut a line just about through the pipe by sticking the blade inside of the pipe. I don't cut all the way through so that I don't damage the fitting. I then heat it from the inside with my torch and once it softens I twist it right out with vise grip needle nose pliers
