It is like saying do I not use 80 grit sandpaper because I have 220 grit. They do different things. The scrub hogs off material. That is it. You better watch your lines or you are going past them. It is just a bit more controlled than an adze or broadaxe.

Once you have removed the bulk of the material you want gone, then you use the jack to smooth it up and something else to finish it like a smoother, jointer or just a scraper.
