Badnit...

That one you linked is a weakling that'll leave you freezing in your sized garage.

Hit HD and either get a tube heater aka Salamander (they rock!) or some other heater that has a fan.. you need the circulation.

I have both the radiant heat single element, and a salamander/torpedo. Both of mine use propane. Alot depends on the insulation in your garage but probably the torpedo is the best buy, a 40k btu is about $125 whereas the single element radiant heat is about $70.

They do work /heat differently. The radiant will heat up objects in the 'path' as well as pour heat off the top whereas the torpedo works like a conventional forced air furnance - it blows hot air. The single element will heat a 13x13 room without much problem. they do make double element units, my brother in law has one and it did a reasonable job with his 24x24 family room. I really havent tried mine in my garage.
The torpedo is for the garage, I point it at what I'm going to be working on so I don't have to freeze my hands. My garage is unsealed and uninsulated and this can keep my work area warm.

Hope this helped.
