the standard wrench with teeth has a much wider range of use, so to take up room on the truck with something you may use once in a while...eh, I say no...but to buy and have it because you want it and may use it around the house..sure why not...
Maybe it's just the way I move my hands but sometimes the pipe wrench just seems to not let go and you have to struggle each time to get it off and readjust it. I think most of it is the play in the jaw, it can swing left/right a lot in addition to foward back. Sometimes I find a flat jaw much easier to use.
