Default Opinions of this electric heated blower, for heating a garage?

I currently have a 85k BTU forced air propane heater for my garage.
The propane can get expensive.

Does this look like a suitable substitute to you?

Does any have an experience with this?

That heater is 1350 watts. If my memory serves that's less than
5000 BTU- 1/17th the output of the heater you have. So if the
heater you have is only on 1/17th of the time or less, the little
electric one won't keep up.

Propane is expensive, but unless you live in the TVA areas I'll bet it
is still cheaper than electricity.
