Taking out shuttered wall

We’ve got to take out 6, 15ftx8ftx 10inch shuttered walls. Don’t really want to peck them out incase it’s rattles the shed to bits!
We got a price off a pro to cut them out but think we could do it a lot cheaper ourselves (may regret this 🙈).
Could use a stihl saw but it’ll be to cut from both sides.
A diamond chainsaw looks the business, but can’t find anyone local who hires them.
A ring saw looks next best bet but local hire company has a cut n break saw, will this be suitable? Roughly how long will it take to cut them and how much wear will there be on the disc as it’s £40 per mm of wear on the disc. There’s no steel reinforcement in the walls.

Put a cut down the outside top to bottom in the middle of the bay with a still saw then give a push from the inside with the digger. If there’s no steel reinforcement it shouldn’t take much doing. If there is steel it will be a nightmare.

Would it not twist the webbing pushing it out?
Thought it would be best to cut both ends of the wall right through, but maybe cutting them half way through with stihl saw then pushing with the digger will work
 
I remember chatting to the bois in the hire desk in a plant hire company in Llanelli, and they told me the chainsaws with a concrete cutting chain were extremely expensive (they had to source one once for one of their customers), can't remember how much they said it cost by the way.

The original shed has old fibre cement sheets which are cracking without the assistance of a pecker 🙈

Could buy one for the same money the pro wanted for doing it

Sounds like stihl saw and pecker is going to be plan A.
Going to have to peck them anyways when they’re out.
They’re just stuttered on top of the floor so should come out fairly easy
