Description

LitterMaid Mega Series Automatic Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box is the ultimate in convenience, eliminating the need for scooping. It contains a motion sensor that determines when your cats enter and leave, automatically scooping any messes into a sealed, disposable receptacle with carbon filters that absorb and trap offensive odors. The strong, durable rake can be removed for simple cleaning, and the extra-high side walls and paw-cleaning ramp help keep more litter in the box and off the floor. It plugs into standard wall outlets and even features backup battery power (requires 8 AA batteries, not included). You’ll get everything you need to get started—4 waste receptacles and 4 carbon filters that last approximately 3+ days each, and a scoop and rake cleaner. This litter box is designed for multi-cat households—for single-cat homes, try LitterMaid Classic Series Automatic Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my rake stuck in the middle of the litter tray?

A waste clump or blockage is preventing normal operation. Follow the instructions from the above question and clear any blockages.

Why does my litter box not start cleaning 10 minutes after cat has left?

This can be cause by dust accumulating on the sensors that activate the cleaning cycle. These sensors are located at the center of both of the side walls of your litter box and activate a cleaning cycle if they detect motion for more than five seconds.

Wipe each sensor with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust. Turn On/Off button to off. Turn On/Off button to on. Unit will run through a cleaning cycle.

Why does my rake not completely clean the litter box?

This can be caused by using the wrong type of litter (such as paper-based litter, pellets, or crystals) or by using a low-quality clumping litter. Check to make sure you are using only high-quality clumping litter. The rake will not work with other types of litter and may leave a tray unclean or only partially clean.

Why won’t my litter box operate after the On/Off button is pressed?

This is usually a power issue. Check to be sure that the outlet is working and/or that the batteries are charged and installed properly. If this is not the cause, your AC adapter may be faulty.

Why do waste clumps adhere to surface of the litter tray?

This may be a product of the type of litter you are using. Check to make sure your litter is a high-quality clumping litter. Also make sure litter is filled above the MIN Fill Line. This can also be caused by an unclean litter tray. Follow the instructions for cleaning the litter tray in your Use & Care manual.

If the problem still persists, it may be caused by too much saturation of the litter at one time. Cats may be going one after another in a multi-cat household or your cat may have a condition that causes excessive urination (often seen in cats with diabetes). Check to see how saturated the litter is getting after each cat in your house leaves. You may need to get an additional litter box or refill litter more often to avoid litter sticking to the tray.

    I dont understand the bad reviews. It works fine. There are a few cons. Small pieces of poop do sometimes get stuck between the rake but its nothing thats not tolerable. The bins fill up pretty fast too. So you wont be buying bins for one cat just once a month. You will need a new bin maybe every 2 to 3 weeks and this is me with just ONE cat. But I always keep a small trash bag on the inside so that I wont have to throw away the entire bin and buy more. One issue that I cant understand why its happening is why poop sometimes gets smushed at the bottom of the box. But I just scoop it up. Not a big deal. People have also complained about the noise. Its not extremely loud but it can get loud. I I dont understand the bad reviews. It works fine. There are a few cons.

Its not extremely loud but it can get loud. I figured out that its because the cat gets litter in between the area where the rake slides. The noise doesnt bother my cat. And hes huge and is able to comfortably poop in the box with plenty of room. Just got another kitten and hopefully she does as well with the box as he does. Besides those few minor issues, I love it. And its more convenient because Im away at college and my parents dont have to look after my cat as much. … more

  • 18+ years and still love it.

    We bought this litter box with our first cat and it lasted us a little over 18 yrs before it died. We found that if we sprayed the rake with a little silicone when we washed the box, that it really helped solve a lot of the sticking problem. We also used plastic shopping bags in the tray. I'm getting ready to purchase a new one, because I have really missed the old one since it died. I have discovered this on amazon (High-Capacity litter disposal system for Littermaid. Compatible with LM980 and all Elite models) and am seriously thinking of getting it to go with the litter box. Chewy has the best pricing around and you can't go wrong with them!

  • Successful!

    Inherited grandma's 8 year old, 20 lb cat. We did what other reviews suggested- put his (disgusting) old litterbox next to LitterMaid on day 1, used WorldsBest litter. Cat was going through a rough time so didnt use either box for 2 full days... but on day 2 skipped the old box all together and went straight for LitterMaid. We keep it in the basement and can't hear it upstairs. Because of the timer, whatever noise it makes doesnt scare cat. We line the waste bin with grocery bags. We can let it go for about 4 days without checking. Easy! Its been about 3 months and still going strong!

  • Love and Hate this box

    I have had this litter box for about 2 weeks, i purchased 2 of them for my 5 cats and plus i kept my traditional litterbox and i am really having a hard time deciding which i like more. These boxes seem to require a bit more maintenance than regular boxes meaning the poop tray fills up awfully fast and you need to dump it everyday, i took someones recommendation to use a plastic bag inside the receptacle so you do not have to throw it out everytime but either way sometimes i find when you are trying to pull it out to replace it no matter how careful you are when it come out from under the little tabs litter flies everywhere and one time in my eyes and mouth!!!! and the lid never stays on so you I have had this litter box for about 2 weeks, i purchased 2 of them for my 5 cats and plus i kept my traditional litterbox and i am really having a hard time deciding which i like more.

Another issue im having is you still have to scoop, the rakes do not dig down deep enough to get the stuff on the bottom and it is always leaving crumbs behind and poop will get stuck to the rakes so you have to get that off too. The poop tray really does not seem to hold the smell in either even after dumping every day. So i guess in the long run you still end up scooping and then some lol. I think next i will try switching litters from the Slide back to Tidy Cat and see if that helps as im finding Slide is just too crumbly. The plus side is my cats did readjust rather well to a new box. … more

  • Not working

    By on

    I bought this to ease my work with three kitties and moving to a new home, this did not do the job it says it will do, put the device together, bought hard clumping litter, and it would not clean the litter or their stool or urine up completely, the reservoir was full within 2 days, it still left odors, and it is the noisiest contraption in the house. I thought I was doing a good thing buying this at a good price for multiple cats, but was wrong. If you have 1 small cat and a far away place to put it, it may work.

  • Love the product.

    By on

    This is my second one in many years of using it. I broke the first one. I have found it to be very useful. The only issue is if the waste is too hard from sitting in between cleanings, the machine will keep raking 3 or 4 times, then shuts off. As for the baskets the waste falls into, I have found, to save money, I just dump the waste into the trash, wash it out, dry and put back in. It saves money on buying them all the time. I replace them when they really need it. Over all, I found this to be a great product.

  • This litter box is life changing... in a negative way

    By on

    This litter box requires daily maintenance. I spent more time and money trying to find the right combo of clumping litter and cleaning solution for the rake. I had to unstick the rake daily, check to ensure it was free and clear of clumped litter and trouble shoot all issues that occurred daily. I spent so much time messing with the box to ensure it was running correctly that I eventually gave up and bought a new standard box. This is not worth the time or money.

  • Very noisy and screechy when it runs

    By on

    The slow squealing, screeching noise while it's cleaning can be heard throughout the house. My cat used it the first day I set it up, and then stopped using it altogether. I'm not sure if it scared her too much or if it's too small an area for her to be in. It isn't near as large as her old litter box. After a few days of her going to the bathroom everywhere except this litter box, I finally put her old box back in place, and problem solved. Although it's a good idea, it's not right for us. I also found you do have to clean the rakes and scrape the box, also keep an eye on the litter level on a daily basis. It's not as maintenence free as I'd hoped it would be.

  • okay price for okay machine

    By on

    The price was right in there for what you get. If you use it for two cats, it will have to be changed every few days. It is a little loud but only lasts for a few minutes. Def worth it because your not messing with the litter as much and the smell is quite a bit less. Might be worth it to have to machines, depending on the layout of your home. I would recommend this cat box.

  • Less than expected. Especially for the price.

    By on

    I have tried 7 different name brands of "premium" clumping litters. No matter what type of, or brand of, litter used I have to scoop daily. Maybe if you could use at least 3" of the litter as advised on box of litter it could clump better. When litter filled within the 2 lines of box, it seems the rack mashes what should have clumped into the bottom of the pan. Even the latest kind of litter. I'll call it "plastic friendly". I can say that it has minimized my daily litterbox duties. Because it does scoop 60%-ish. So with multiple cats... If cat suddenly becomes ill, loose bowels etc. I'd suggest using the old style litterbox. It is noisy. Motor is to week.
