I have had my Bandido II umax for over 20 yrs and still love it
$160 is a great deal on one of the best Tesoro units ever made IMHO

You can always make a counter-offer, you might get an even better bargain. I wouldn't hesitate to say yes to a used Tesoro...that's how I bought mine about 13/14 years ago.
Though you should take a look at the Compadre for the same price. It's one dial turn on and go simplicity. Or for a hundred bucks more the Silver Sabre Micromax.

The Compadre is a "lower end" model, but that does not mean it isn't as good as the Bandido.
The Bandido has more adjustments that you need to learn to really utilize it fully.
Simple or more complex...you decide...they will both work great
