Sure, but that must be constant processing with little breaks and you get jams etc. 

I'm not sure how big the processor is but that's not a huge amount I wouldn't say. If I have someone loading I aim to do 5-10cube an hour (with a large processor) depending on the wood and cut length. Obviously you lose a bit of time to issues but after you get used to a processing you shouldn't have many blockages and a chain should last half a day.

Actually not.

The processor loads it so you dont handle the wood that much.

 

Yes its a good days work but not killing yourself if you set up is right.

Yep bigger sited processor will do loads more.

 

This is a little 750kg road tow WP30.

Peak rate is 3 to 4 m3 per hour but stoppages reduce the rate over the day.

Not bad at all. Maybe its because when I process Ive been lumbered with the gnarly hardwood. :D I see theres a stack of poker straight birch waiting for me when I have time, that will be a dream come true. :D
