Not a Dovetail....?

Too small a trailer so I will call it a sparrowtail..

Made the booster ramps first you see on the end of the loading ramps because the snow blower on my JD 445 would scuff and scrape when I tried to load it.

But needed to store and carry the booster ramps... so did the small dovetail to reduce approach angle so do not need drag around the two extra pieces.

NO MODIFICATIONS to the ramps themselves, or the trailer. You can see how they store side by side and transport, so that works fine as it always did.

Nothing clever I did... just that it works well and have about $75 in materials. May work for you if you have same problems. It is just bolted on so can remove if ever needed to.

Not a fan of the folddown ramps seems the mesh is never heavy enough... and when you rebuild them properly they can get pretty pricey and heavy.
