Shimano BB6700 Tool

I have the Hollowtech BB6700 cranks on the bike and I need the tool to remove. I just need some advice on which one to buy? Is it the Park BBT-9 or ShimanoTL-FC32?
I am looking on Amazon and not coming up with it yet, will try again

oops - is this the one or can I find cheaper, something else?

I assume you really mean you're removing the BB from the frame Removing the crank arms only need a 5mm hex wrench for the pinch bolts. Andy

That tool you linked, should get the job done of removal.
But if you plan to install a similar BB; I'd go with a cup style.
This way you can use a torque wrench:
