Waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy more than that. The capacity of that bucket (In US liquid gallons) is 2.557 to the 15th power. I didn't feel like doing the math beyond that point.

I think it will hold 11,088 gallons. That would weigh about 46.5 tons. Does that sound better?

Sounds a bit better, I was figuring 50 tons, that'* about 12,500 gals. There'* no way that can lift 450 tons.
