You are talking about 50 CY, without any allowance for backslope if not inherently stable material - so for easy digging for a backhoe probably about $2-6/CY from easy loose digging (sand and gravel) on up through stiff clay to well weathered bedrock at the more expensive end. True bedrock can run more like $10-100/CY depending on how hard it is and how much there is to be removed - cost also depends highly in whether contractor owns the equipment to remove the bedrock or not or has to bring in special equipment. Plus probably about $2-3/CY for on-site disposal within say 100 feet or less of hole, or $5-10/CY range commonly for disposal (if not readily disposable at excavation site as construction fill) depending on how far he has to haul it and whether the fill is usable by the contractor on another job (or can be sold to another contractor).
