Quite a few things actually.
1) Range modeling. PokerCruncher appears to use the Hand vs 3 Randoms model, which was originally designed for limit holdem many years ago. PokerTracker includes Hand vs 3 Randoms and also the Sklansky Karlson models by default, plus the end user can create and share their own models - for example I created weighted 3Bet ranges for polarized and depolarized ranges.
2) Ties are accounted for
3) The equity calculator is populated by the hand replayer, which saves you a lot of time
4) You can save ranges and reuse them (both applications allow the import and export of "scenarios" however)
5) Both Hand rank and Suit wildcards are available
And of course there is Omaha, but as you pointed out thats something that doesn't matter for your needs, but for some players its a blessing.
In turn there are some features that PT4 does not have, the only thing I see that would be useful is the export of Scenario text - but this is compensated for because we include street by street equity breakdowns in hand history texts.
