Most (all?) states require at least heavy equipment operator license and Class A of CDL. Some have specialized license for backhoes.
People like to pretend that all these licenses and permits are problems of the "Old World" and in a brave new "Free World" you can do whatever you want whenever you want, but it may surprise you if you'll actually try to dig deeper and see how many things require a license in US.

If you are going to be employed running a backhoe, and especially if you are going to drive one on public streets, then the licensing that you are talking about will come into play.
