Motor Guard stud welder and dent pulling kit?

A local pawn shop has a Motor Guard stud welder/dent puller kit. It has both the slide hammer and the stud welder. I think the one below from amazon is the kit, but would have to go back to be sure.
http://www.amazon.com/Motorguard-JLM...d_sim_sbs_hi_1

It has the two main tools, the case and a bunch of studs. They are wanting 169 or so. I know that is cheaper than new(on amazon at least), but is it a good or at least ok deal? And even more important is it a good tool? And can I do the same thing for cheaper or at least improvise the stud welder combo somehow, since I already have a welder? Will it be that much better than the cheap harbor freight unit? I just need it for very light duty work.

I have a few dents to pull on my caddy where the backside access is limited. Plus a good crease in the back driver's side door right near the front where you can't easily get to the backside. The advantage of buying it from the pawnshop is I can put it on layaway pretty cheap. They have worked with me a bunch.

I debated putting this here or in garage tools, but since it is a specific body tool I thought this was the best place.

I'm with DBM on this one buy it. it seems awfully cheap and a decent brand you can get replacement parts for. Harbor Fright, you're prolly stuck with a useless piece of junk that belongs in the dumpster from the get go. Plus with the pawn shop, you're supporting a locally owned business or at least local business.

harbor freight ones will shrink as much as they pull. So if you have a small ding you'll shrink it more than you really want before it gets a good stick. Just crap.

in my opinion, most tools at pawn shops are stolen and pawned. supporting your local pawn shop to me is the same as asking someone to steal your tools and supporting the local thieves.
