Which DC Brushed Motor Should I use for this project

Hi, I am trying to build a washing machine that can turn clothes in a large 55-gallon bucket with an RPM speed of 60rpm. I need this motor to be not too heavy, I was thinking of using gears to increase its power. Does anyone know what motor I should use for such a project? and where I can find it? if you are able to provide a link that would be great, Thank you!

The bucket and contents will be close to 500lbs.
May require some kind of controlled acceleration by the mechanism Definitely a GB is a good idea.
One route may be the TM motors and PWM controllers that run from 2HP to 3.5HP.
