I find the Boley ones better for smaller stuff but a lot will depend on condition.

They are easily abused by someone who does not know what they are doing.

Condition first and then the best you can afford.

Sorry to be a critic but have to be. I think you can do better for the money. Looks like there are some good stakes but the tool looks pretty tired.

A CE Marshall Moseley has served me well.

Try looking at some expensive sets first so you can get a feel for what a good one looks like and why it might be expensive.
Look at condition and what comes with it.
Then go back at look at the one you have found and see how it compares.

Remember that if the basic kit is good you can add stakes as and when the need arises.
Be careful of the stakes with small holes in them. They often have something jammed in the hole which can be very hard to remove.

I actually like the Moseley you listed. Looks like it is in pretty good shape. You could ask for a few more pics of the staking table to be sure it is in good shape/no holes plugged as well. Though generally speaking they are fairly easy to clear as the tool comes apart easy.

If you wanted a roller table remover set to go with your staking set I could set you up for a new/old stock one that I have. Start with getting your staking set and then we can work on the other "Stuff" that is nice to have.
