overkill

I kinda like using 8mm coach screws if there's any weight involved, eg these ones. But the Multi ships with two thick-ish stainless steel (or looks like it at least) screws that sits very snug in a 6mm drilled hole so I've never had to do this engineering myself.

The inverter doesn't ship with suitable screws? :-)

nope. Sadly they don't include bolts. The 10KVA unit does have bolts though, weird. 

 

I normally use m8 rawl bolts, unless the wall is soft, then chemical anchor comes to play

I think its a great thing not having bolts... just suggested sizes and strengths...

Every wall is different and I wouldn't want to hang 30-50kg off a wall with bolts that were not appropriate for the application.

My 2c anyway ;)

Covering for Voltronic? :P

Truth be told, I think he has a point: Use the correct screw. The main reason they include screws is likely because the case and bracket is aluminium and if some idiot uses the wrong screw to hang it with you'll get galvanic corrosion and it will drop from the wall. Oh, and these things life on boats, yachts and barges, so even more important. So its to protect people from themselves, or that is my guess.
