might try this
ky redneck solution

the bottom bolt that goes through the hitch frame. the one that goes through the front eyelet of the short flexible hitch connector.

get two longer bolts and try attaching your two lower arms to that bolt on each side.

this would be just a trial temporary connection, but see if the tractor would pick up the machine higher and give you better level control.

if so, then you must figure out how to make this connection point a Permanent connection point for the two lower arms.

I do not know if you can see it in the attached picture, but to make my old Howse cutter work properly on my TO-35 ferguson, I had to add about a 4-5" extention (higher) connection point) to the top connector of the cutter 3 pt hitch frame. this gave the cutter more rear lift as for some reason my tractor 3pt hitch would just not lift the rear of the machine high enough.
with out hitting the pto shaft on front edge of the cutter.

I also have to take off my straight bar hitch, I see yours is still on the tractor, when I use the cutter.
it will hit the pto shaft.

they make these cutters to fit most all tractors.
but our little ford/fergy's, the pto shaft is much lower on the tractor, than it is on other makes
AC, farmall, oliver, john deere, etc.

hope this helps some,
main thing, be careful and safe. you do not want to get hurt or tear up your new cutter.
