Thats basically it. I want an all terrain, 3 wheel pushchair (needs big wheels as i walk everywhere and will be battlibg the elements come Nov to get ds to preschool)
I want it to be capable of rear facing as well as dd likes to see me. The herqules is the only model ive found that ticks all the boxes but i cant find it anywhere to buy other than ebay (would prefer a new one though as it will need to last)

Can anyone help?

The casualplay kudu 3 and maxi cosi mura are also 3 wheel reversible seat pushchairs. Also a TFK joggster twist with multi x carrycot/reversible seat unit. Quite pricy but high quality. Buddy seat, buggyboard and mamaboard(!) options too.

There aren't many but my brain is nagging me, I'm sure there are a few more if only I can remember them.

The Koelstra Mambo looks good. It would be an import I suppose.

I think to get a new Herqules, if it's even possible you would have to import it.

Some good options there but none of them are
exactly what im after. It seems it doesn't exist.

Cant use a carrycot for rear facing solution as dd is nearly 6mo and hates being lay on her back.

Oh well back to the drawing board! Thank you for your suggestions though.

All the ones mentioned sit upright whilst parent facing. Is there something else you need as well as that and the terrain suitability?

Like Parties says, all the above will sit upright when parent facing.
I will add a Nipabout too.

You can't buy them new! They were discontinued when handed over to EmmalJunga from Swiss Design.

If you want new then the EmmalJunga Monkey is practically the same pram only with smaller front wheels.

I love my Herqules Raptor Spin, so much so that I bought the double of it! grin

And even if you buy second hand, it would have to be in a pretty poor state to not last.

Both of mines were second hand, have used the single for well over a year and could probably use it for another 10 years with no issue, they are pretty bomb proof.

I had one and, although it was bomb-proof, it really wasn't good off road. The wheels were fat and solid and so would slip and slide all over the mud, rather than having narrow wheels which would sink down into the mud to get some grip.
