Having rocky soil kinda makes it tuff to make a good smooth dith but I have a smooth 5' ditch bucket on my excavator for digging ditches. You can get a similar result by welding a piece of flat steel across the teeth of your backhoe bucket. It really kinda depends on how deep and what kinda ditch your wanting too. If your wanting just a shallow v ditch a tractor and blade is as good as anything. If your wanting a rounded or flat bottom ditch I would use your backhoe. Its time consuming using a regular backoe to dig a good ditch with good fall because you spend alot of time moving and situating and raising and lowering your outriggers and you either have to sit and dig sideways or you have to spend even more time moving around. but Im spoiled with having an excavator.
