a 3 point hoe will work for that as well as most part time digging projects on a home place, but its not a commercial backhoe either and its not intended to run every day all day and run in rock ect, that being said a couple of important things to consider first is the hydraulic output of whatever tractor your going to mount it on, a say 4020 jd no problem, a 8N ford, we got a problem, in the case of a tractor with a small hydraulic output like that you'll need a front pump to effectivly run the backhoe, the factory pump will run it, if you chain the lift arms down, but it will be very very slow operating, like a sip of coffee per function slow and thats with the cup sitting in a cup holder on the tractor, 1 function at a time, also dont get one of those add on hoes with the 1 inch diameter cylinders, i can tell you from personal and bitter experience those dont have any rip out force to them at all, the "yuppie tractor" hoes are ok for mulch or gardening but thats about it, the bigger the cylinder diameter the more power the hoe has, but that also means it must be a match for the tractor its going on, the implement dealer can help you with that even if you dont buy new, you can find which kind of hoe is suitable for your tractor, mounting a horse of a hoe on a pony of a tractor will destroy the tractor , in which case its money ahead to just rent a regular commercial backhoe for a big job, also consider one of the mini excavators which will outwork a mini backhoe 4 to 1, ive used several , the things small size will fool you, ive done several project with one of those that i flat had my doubts about the machines abilities, turned out to be a non issue
