Default Going down hill in reverse?

Will it hurt my motor to put the cart in reverse and let it slowly ride down a hill going forward to help my brakes out? I have some steep hills I ride down in the woods and the brakes sometimes have trouble with them but if I put it in reverse it will slowly trudge down the hill.

You might look into Ausco cable/disc brakes...Could be cheaper than a motor replacement....
