True enough--except that rather than use my little Kubota backhoe I hired it 
done and the backhoe that was used had a hydraulic
telescoping capability on the arm that holds the bucket.  It would extend 6' 
or 8' or so beyond the length of the arm and made the job of digging a deep 
but narrow, square hole easy.  Not many backhoes have the telescoping 
feature but if you shop around you might find one.  This was a big rig and 
the charge was $60 per hour with a two hour minimum.  No transportation 
charge though.
