You might look at the rack installation procedure starting on page
6-26 of the install gude:

Basically, you unscrew the rails from the drive, and then they'll
mostly be sitting on the rails, and you can lift it off.

BTW, It's more like 90kg for the rack and 70kg per drive according to
the service manual.
