Another factor in soil compaction with a tractor mounted rototiller is that if you go over the tilled area more than one pass your tractor tires will really mash down the tilled soil. At one time I did a fair amount of garden tilling for hire with a 5 tiller on a John Deere 950 and found that if you went over the area more than once you would usually end up with clods where the tires ran . The best results came from tilling when the soil was dry enough (but not so dry it was hard), one slow pass with slight overlapping and running at a lower than 540 pto speed which reduced breaking tines or shearing shear pins. The tractor had very slow ground speed in low range and was excellent for this application. (This is the same tractor I mentioned in my response to your quick detach loader post.)
