Concrete has unique curing requirements, and failure to adhere to these can lead to cracking or a weakened final product. A cure rig (or cure machine) is designed to avoid this situation, by passing over the concrete pavement that's just been laid down. Some are built to also texture the pavement as they pass over, spraying cure compound at the same time. This saves fuel, as both tasks are accomplished in the same pass (1).

Frequently Asked Questions
Knowing how to prepare your heavy equipment is essential, especially if your load is going overseas.
Although there are inspections at state borders, especially as regards heavy equipment, it's better than when you're transporting something overseas.
The first step when shipping a cure rig is having it cleaned. Determine to hire professionals to do the job because even the slightest of dirt can have your rig sent to a quarantine facility. After all, many foreign countries place importance on their environment's balance.
The fuel tank should be at least 1/4 of its capacity if it isn't empty. You should turn off any controls and take out any batteries to ensure nothing turns in during the journey.
These steps are usually the customer's responsibility.
Yes, you can easily have a cure rig transported overseas. Once you hire a reliable transport company, it'll ask you to submit the necessary documents like valid identification, bill of lading, original title, and other fundamental documents that will guarantee a faster processing time.
The critical part lies in getting a US Customs and Border Patrol Export Vehicle Sheet, a USPS Customs Form, an EPA Form, and a Department of Transport (DOT) form. These are crucial when exporting a vehicle to another country, especially when it comes to heavy equipment since there are several minor aspects that Customs must consider before approving your export.
The biggest hurdle the transport company will face in other instances is ensuring the loaders can load the cure rig carefully so it doesn't topple during the journey because of its width.
The reason is that its width is the only factor that presents a challenge. A standard cure rig weighs approximately 36000 pounds, and the limit for an oversized load is 46000 pounds, quickly putting it under the level. But since a rig is on the broader side, loading becomes imperative.
The shipping company must load the cure rig so that both sides have equal weight, or it may topple during the journey.
The company must secure the rig carefully before the driver sets out.
Depending on the model, a cure rig can quickly go over regulations. However, a standard one will stay within the weight range but over the width limit, making it slightly complicated to transport.
First, when assembled and retracted, the width of a cure rig is around 10 feet with its spray bar folded inwards and the transverse timing broom removed (it's stored separately). Next, its height is approximately 10.5 feet, with the exhaust pipe removed. Its length can go up to 56 feet easily.
Since the minimum limits in the USA are 8.5 feet for width, 13.5 feet for height, and 43 to 58 feet for length, a standard cure rig becomes a wide load.
