The reusable Falcon 9' performance to geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) is listed by Space X as 5,500 kg. The same rocket in the fully expendable version can lift 50 percent more payload - 8,300 kg. For the Falcon Heavy, the performance to GTO is about 4X that of the reusable version at 22,200 kg

The expendable Falcon 9 payload capability is listed as capable of 22,800 kg to low earth orbit (LEO) and the Falcon Heavy is listed at 54,400 kg to LEO.
