Replacing Can Capacitors 400 series scopes

Wondering if anyone would care to pass along tips for removal of the larger can capacitors in equipment such as the 400 series power supply section. There are large quantities of solder and seems to take a lot of heat and easy to damage the traces thru pins between the upper and lower sections. I currently have good desolder equipment but still seem to have an issue getting all the solder out of the holes to disconnect from upper and lower traces without overheating them.
