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 purchased (2) of these. I purchased the correct litter and keep the litter at the appropriate level. I constantly have to scrape large clumps off of the bottom. It gets hung up and keeps running trying to correct the problem. It is very noisy. My cats are not afraid of it but it actually wakes us up. The waste receptacles are expensive and are pretty disgusting to replace. Wear gloves! I will say that on the days that it is working properly, my home smells better than when the waste builds up in a standard litter box and sits there all day while we are at work. They are certainly not as maintenance free as they sounded. I would return them if I could.

  • Beats the Heck Out of Manual Litter Trays

    I have 4 cats and one multi-cat auto Litter Maid box. Years ago I had one auto Litter Maid, it was wonderful. It broke after several years and I replaced it, but the one I got in replacement fell apart and broke almost immediately. Thus it left a bad taste and I did not replace it. With 4 cats the manual box was becoming a lot of work and so I decided to replace it with another Litter Maid and I'm very glad that I did. It is working wonderfully. I am going to buy a second one to save a little of the labor. If you're looking for an automatic litter tray that requires no work - bring your head out of the clouds.

Tips for easier use: I am using SLIDE multi cat litter which keeps the urine from sticking to the bottom of the tray. Keep a hand-vac handy for vacuuming up loose debris. Use 3 or 4 grocery bags in the litter receptacle trays - it's a cost saver as you simply remove the tray and the single bag and tie it up and throw it away. This is a cost saver. It can get stuck in a re-run mode, so don't place it in your bedroom where it might disturb you at night. My house does not smell like cat urine or poop and it is less time consuming than the manual trays. It's all about getting acclimated to a new routine. I am going to buy a second automated litter tray to make it a little more easier for my 4 cat home.. … more

  • More work than a regular litter box

    By on

    I researched and decided on this as the most promising automatic litter box. It took training but within about a week my two cats were no longer afraid of the noise. The sensor and rake work perfectly. However, the rake does not get to the bottom so my big male cat's pee had to be manually cleaned and scraped from the bottom (I swear he pees like a horse). About half the time their poop stuck to the rake. And when the cats scratch and create a big pile in the corner, the rake dumps out a huge amount of litter. Finally I gave up and decided to return it after I found the top to the receptacle had fallen off multiple times, dumping dirty litter on top and blocking my cats from accessing I researched and decided on this as the most promising automatic litter box.

The whole receptacle is flimsy and problematic and litter gets everywhere all around it. There is absolutely no way this provides a "7 day Maintenance free clean" - 1 day at best and from my experience with more maintenance than a normal litter box. Nice idea, just doesn't work in reality. … more

  • Great product for the price.

    By on

    5th LitterMaid in ten years. Mine last about 3 years and then need replacement. I run two side by side with two cats in the household. The first ones had a cord on the rake that would wear out and break off; now it is a cordless rake. I have been considering a litter robot but that seems like extra maintenance for me. Let me explain; I elevate my LitterMaid on a platform and place a 13 gallon trash can underneath the waste reservoir. Double bag the trash can and all waste will enter into the trash can. I replace the trash bag about once a month with two cats. No buying the litter receptacles or having to handle the plastic receptacles. Drawstring trash bag, no mess, no gloves. P.S.

  • Would recommend

    By on

    We have 4 beautiful cats ranging from 4 years to 15 years. As you can imagine there is a good amount of waste coming from that amount of cats. I am so pleased with how well this unit has worked for our family. I did have to cycle through a few different clumping litters to find which one worked best without clogging the rake, but, it was well worth it! I also recommend treating the rake and pan with a non-stick cooking spray prior to filling with litter. Trust me, it will help with the smooth cleaning process.

  • This is a good litter box

    By on

    This is a good litter box. It is big enough for my 3 cats, where one cat is older and bigger than the others, he is able to get in easily. The only drawback is that even with good clumping litter, when there is a lot of urine it gums up so we have to make sure to scrape the rake regularly. The clumped rake pushes too much litter into collection bin. My cats like it very much

  • The Jury Is Still Out

    By on

    We've had this system about a month now and there are some things I like and some I don't. The pros: both my cats used it without hesitation; it gives them ample time to come and go from the box; it is very nice not to have to scoop so often. The cons: the motor is really loud - it sounds like a paper shredder; maybe my cats go more than normal but it wouldn't handle a more than 2 cat household as we have to empty the tray more than once per week; I wish the pan was a little deeper.

  • Doesn't last

    By on

    Wouldn't recommend this if you are expecting it to last. I have had it for about a year and a half. I have had minor problems here and there, but the motor is dying now and can't get up the hill. I have taken it completely apart. Made sure it was on track and gears in place. And still cannot get it to work. As a broke college student one can't afford to buy a new one every 1.5 years.

  • 3 cat household

    By on

    We have three cats and two of these litter boxes. With three cats I empty them both once a day. I love that my house does not stink and the litter boxes stay clean for my cats which eliminates the accidents outside of the box. It would be nice if they I could go longer then one day to empty but that’s what you get with multiple cats.

  • 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.
