Can you hang a mac 2k horizontally? 90° from a vertical pipe?

Can't find it in the manual.

From page 13 of my version of the manual, under Rigging:
The MAC 2000 Performance II can be placed on stage or clamped to a truss in any orientation.
To me, any orientation means frontways, backways, sideways, slantways, and so forth.

I've done what you are describing, for use as sidelight, but for a one-off, not a long run. One trick I've learned is to hang the unit from the vertical with the yoke either US or DS, 90° from the target, then swap P/T in the fixture set-up on the console. Makes focussing much easier.
