The 42 model has a stated capacity of… 42 lbs.  That’s an estimate for pet food.  According to specs on the manufacture’s website model #300662 has a capacity of 55 quarts.  55 quarts = 13.75 gallons.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 68.75 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate, actual storage capacity will vary.
