The rotor is not held on by the big nut, it slides on and off, only the wheel holds it on, the clearance between the rotor and the front hub which the large nut holds on is very small, rust forms and the rotor gets stuck, use a hammer or a large piece of wood if you plan to reuse the rotor and hit it from side to side, spray penetrating oil to loosen the rust, it is a bugger but it will come loose, then make sure to wire brush all the rust off or wheel retention may be compromised.

On the heavy-duty models like this one (and mine) the rotors are indeed pressed on. The whole assembly comes off via four bolts on the inside of the assembly. Look in a Chilton's or Hayne's at your local auto parts store to see it with pictures.
Do not just hammer away as the previous ignoramus suggested. They'll never come off and you'll just end up breaking something.

You have a 3 or 4 15mm bolts in the back of the hub. They are torqued very high and extremely difficult to remove. They are also easily rounded off. You need a snap on 1/2" drive inpact wobble 15mm socket and leave steering wheel unlocked so you can rotate wheel to get 2 of them at a time.
