I made a note of this a while back but not 100% certain its correct.

20 - 45lbs (9.1 - 20.5kg)

That is before detuning. 

 

Maybe someone else can confirm?

That doesn't sound quite right to me - I'm pretty sure the Master arm can do up to 65 pounds before detuning, down to 40 at the low end of the adjustment. From what I remember it is a 25 pound range though. The 20-45 pound range would then be approximate camera capacity, given the weight of the Master sled.

Yes, the Master (and IIIa and II arms with the gold springs) lifts about 65lbs max, 37 or so minimum. If you subtract the weight of the sled and batts, you get a different "payload" number. Change the sled and batts and you get a different payload. The Master Series Cine had a 7+ lb monitor and very heavy NiCad batteries (3 lbs? - I forget). Now monitors are in the 1.5 pound range, Li-ion batts so much lighter, so the payload can be much more.
