I have fixed this with epoxy and fiberglass reinforcement. I also put some labels on there reminding people to be gentle with the hose attachments since that area of the tool is slightly fragile.

Two things: First, thanks for this fix, which should be much stronger than just glue. And second, what are you suggesting we should be? People usually tell me to stop being that.
