The "F-Super Duty" (as the fender emblems stated) models appeared from 1987 to 1997. They were basically F-450s built as an "incomplete vehicle" (chassis cab) due to the fact that there was no bed installed and an aftermarket bed (specific to its future use) was added after the truck's initial build date. It came with dual fuel tanks with a dash-mounted toggle switch to switch between each tank while using only the one fuel gauge. It came with a PTO (Power Take-Off) used to power attachments (like winches or a dump bed) from the transmission. They were rated at about 15,000 lb (6,800 kg) GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). They came with either the standard 7.5 L (460 CID) gas V8 or the optional 7.3 L (445 CID) diesel V8. All wheels were 10-lug with DRW (Dual Rear Wheels). This model should not be confused with the "Super Duty" commercial line of trucks starting with the 1999 model year.

From wiki on "Ford F Series"

If it's a superduty, it will have that huge rear axle with disc brakes that they came with. Most are geared 4.11 or lower (there was a 5.XX ratio too I think). They aren't fast trucks, but especially with a ZF5 in them, would likely move a small house if needed. As to actual towing numbers, we'd need some more info on it, rear axle ratio, tranny, etc.

There's a newer user on here now moving a PC50 excavator with one, which is going to be about a 5 tonne machine, plus his float, so likely in the 16-20K pound range to tow?

guy next door as a 89. its got the zf5 in it, he had 5.xx (cant remember the exact 5.38 i think) and he was maxxed out on the red line at 60mph. he got a set of 4.56 for them (thats the tallest gears they have for them) they are disk rear as stated before, they also have hydroboost brake booster and the transmission is the 4x4 version. their parking brake unit bolts to the rear of the transmission where the transfer case would be. if nobody answers you by the time i talk to him next, i will ask what his gcvwr is.

the vin should start with 1FTMF47M
this is for a F superduty 4X2 with a diesel engine. GVWR 16,001-19,500 lb

if the vin is F47L, than the GVWR is going to be 14,001-16000 lbs

That would depend on the trailer.

With a tandem or tri axle trailer running dual wheels on the axles, you could get above 26,000 pounds.

factory service manual has all the info you need.

about the only thing chiltons and haynes manuals are good for is lining the floor of a bird cage.
