Plastic handle degrades significantly in sunlight

Apparently the UV protection additive for the vinyl plastic coating on the handle got left at the factory. My first Ames shovel lasted about a year, then the handle developed extensive cracking as the plastic pulled away from itself and shrank where exposed to sunlight. The core of the handle actually collapsed a short time later. Walmart courteously & promptly replaced it, but the second identical Ames shovel handle began to crack & shrink within a month. Call me crazy, but I'm of the firm opinion that a garden/construction impliment shouldn't spontaneously dissolve when exposed to sunlight...All of my subsequent garden tools have either actual FIBERGLASS handles or good old splintery wood ones. Ames has cost cut too deep on this one.

This shovel is not worth the metal and plastic it took to make it. Mine broke just digging a hole in my yard after just a few uses
