Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., LTD (Hitachi) sent a letter to the Air Resources Board (ARB) in September 2009 notifying ARB of a compliance issue.  The issue was an incorrect emissions label applied to large spark-ignited engine.  The engine was an ARB certified Tier 1 engine that was certified to Tier 2 as an AB&T engine.  Hitachi switched out the incorrectly labeled engine for a straight Tier II engine.  The case was settled in December 2009 for $50.
