Electric log splitters

I have a large 27 ton splitter for firewood and have a lot of oak flooring (probably a cubic yard)that I have been splitting into thin strips with a machete for starter wood.

It takes a really long time to split a good batch and have been wondering if one of those small 6-7 HP electric splitters would cut this flooring into narrow (1/4" wide) pieces.

I have not looked at the wedge on them so do not know if it is sharp enough to do this. They are often available used in this area for $60-$70 and I think they could be easily resold after I am done.

Thanks
