From talking to my yard mechanic he says he often has to split the bearing with a saw or screw driver to get it out as they are usually really stuck. I imagine this is something you would do slowly as to not to deform or damage the housing. There are typically set screws on the side which will probably be fused as well. I think it is doable but just block out enough time, have the right tools and use lots of penetrating oil.
