Most of ours are failures of the wood or fiberglass. I don't think I have ever broke a handle. But darn if I know how to teach somebody how to just stop short of the break point. And it would have to translated. That is why I am putting metal handles in. I stopped and looked at an irrigation crew today and all handles were pipe.
