In March 1985, Pratley Wondafix was launched. In an actual test authenticated by Moodies International, a 13 tonne bulldozer was hoisted into the air suspended on a Wondafix bond and Mr Pratley took a seat beneath it.
Eighteen years later and the bulldozer was still hanging on the original bond. "It is Pratley policy to manufacture and and market products, the performance of which, must at all times exceed that of any other directly competing product on the World Market. We invite you to put this to the test" K.G.M. Pratley.
