It will cut OK and is cheaper to use than Acetylene but not only does Acetylene work better you can weld with it, something you can not do with Propane (you can however braze and solder with Propane). Acetylene is the most versatile of the available torch fuels and allows the user to do things he simply can not do with Propane, Propylene, Natural gas, etc.
