Some backhoes( larger ones only I think) have a hydraulic telescoping arm on 
the outer limb.  This allows the backhoe boom end to be positioned at the 
center of the hole to be dug and the outer arm can use its telescoping 
member to go straight down to dig the dirt.
Without this feature the outer arm is at an angle that makes it difficult to 
get the dirt out without bumping into the side of hole.
I would ask the backhoe excavator to use this type.

I just did this used a small backhoe 12" bucket 4.7x4.7x5.6 got difficult 
the last 2.5ft. down 3.5x7 is going to be tough not a lot of room to move 
around in. You might want to go bigger just for ease.Good luck N1KGP Martin
