Maximum payload is shown at 4779lbs, but Ford claims its really closer to 7200lbs. Towing is rated at 31,200lbs.
I started a thread a while back on the lower cargo capacities of the F450, and got some interesting answers.

You did get a few guesses huh....I'll admit...mines the correct answer

A light duty truck is officially classified as a truck weighing 14000lbs or less. In order to claim the F450 as a light duty truck, given its increased curb weight over the F350, they had to reduce the published payload capacity and claim an overall GVW of 14k to keep it there. Otherwise it would have been categorized as a medium duty truck and would require a CDL to drive.
