Parabody 250 weight stack

I found a parabody 250 weight stack nearby for $100. Is this a good buy for doing lat and other cable exercises? Does anybody have a similar machine? Thoughts? I was able to find assembly instructions online -- but very little information outside of that. Any idea how old is this?
