Can a folding prop be used in pusher config?

I'm scratch building a slope/electric Cutlass. Can I use a folding prop as a pusher? Do I just buy a stock one and reverse the blades or something?

I realize I may have to reverse the motor, but I have no experience at all with folding props so thought I'd ask you guys.

And I also forgot to ask, any feedback on the reliability of the speed 600 3:1 gearbox Multiplex sells?

Been running a Graupner 6x3 folder on my Zagi for months...just reverse the blades. You will need to put in a stop inside the spinner so the blades don't fold back over center (won't sling out when you hit throttle again, and vibrates like mad )I made my stops out of hard balsa, sanded to fit inside the spinner...just takes a bit of cut and fit.
