Meanwhile in Ukraine …
Strongman Alexander Pekanov gets a 455kg Deadlift (1003 lbs) with straps.
At first I was skeptical if it was really 455kg. But after posting it to facebook and getting you guys were quick to find some references that make that lift more plausible (like his 410kg from 2005).

Second heaviest DL ever on video
WHEN SHOWING PEOPLE LIFTING WEIGHTS IT WOULD BE USEFUL TO STATE THE BODY WEIGHT OF THE LIFTER AND THE MASS OF THE WEIGHT LIFTED. STRENGTY IS ASCERTAINED BY DIVIDING THE MASS OF THE WEIGHT LIFTED BY THE BODY MASS OF THE LIFTER. EXAMPLE: AT MY PEAK I DEAD LIFTED 230 KILOGRAMS AT A BODY MASS OF 100 KILOGRAMS GIVING ME A RATIO OF 2.3 I AM CURRENTLY 88 AND MY MAXIMUM IN THE DEAD LIFT IS 160 KILOGRAMS.
