Which way do the tines spin?
Do the tines spin backward, pulling against what is pulling the tiller or do they spin forward pushing the machine pulling the tiller?
I have heard the best tiller to buy to pull behind rotates backward, which ends up the in the best broken up ground.

The tines rotate forward as you are towing the unit.

They spin forward pushing. Dunno bout backward rotating tines. Forward rotating tines require less power from your towing machine.

To answer your question, or to make it clear, backward rotating tines are best for the job of sod busting. For chopping up green manure crops, or to till a plot that has been tilled before, use forward rotating tines. I have both, and the backward rotating sets while I use to forward rotating one for almost all my work. Forward will give you a lot better seed bed. Both have their use. I hope this helps!
