faucet panic

HomeblessingsMarch 23, 2013

I posted this over on the kitchen forum, but then thought I might find some plumbing experts over here. Here's my dilemma:

I ordered this faucet after I read a review on it that it could be mounted with the handle in the front.

After receiving the faucet and looking at the mounting instructions I was unsure if I could do this. I have searched and searched but I can't find that review, and I'm now wondering if I was mistaken and it was for a different faucet.
I used the Q&A service seen on many of the internet shopping sites to ask if the handle could be mounted on the front. I have received 3 conflicting answers. Here they are:

"I took a look at the installation spec sheets for this product and based on how it installs there doesn't seem to be any reason why you wouldn't be able to install this with the handle in the front."

"The Vigo VG02001 can not be mounted any differently than displayed in the picture."

"The handle can only be mounted on the side."

The counters are being templated next week, and I need to let them know where I want the hole for the faucet to be. I may not have enough room with the granite backsplash if it has to be mounted on the side.

Does anyone here have plumbing knowledge that can look at the instructions and let me know for sure,or does anyone have this faucet who has mounted it in the front?
Here's the link to the mounting directions:

Should not be a problem at all. Some of the vigo faucet reviews show them installed to the front.

If you want to be absolutely sure, call Vigo customer service and ask if it can swivel 360 degrees (and if not, what is the swivel range from the center of the faucet

Vigo customer service ( I pulled this from the web, so not sure if it's accurate):

Thanks so much. I am planning to call on Monday. Thanks for the number.

Can you tell me where I can find a picture of one installed in front. I haven't seen one on model #VG0200.

according to the site it can rotate 360*.

But it is not clear to me how far the handle rotates for hot/cold. The picture is something like 0*-90* which doesn't make a lot of sense.
