Overall works well! I have 3 cats and need to empty the container every 1 or 2 days but it's really quick to just dump out. If you use too much litter it might get stuck but you can just turn it off and back on to fix that. I plan to buy another one to replace my upstairs litter box too
All the bad reviews are misleading, you have to make sure it's positioned right and has enough room to move back and forth! Other than the annoying blinking light this product works really well!
We bought this for our 1 cat. Found out really quick it gets jammed easy. The cat goes in does his business and scratches to cover it up, normal right? The smallest of litter gets on the tracks and it locks up. I spent more time fixing it than it did “self cleaning “! Wouldn’t waste your money folks!!
Have mixed feelings about this, first one, waste receptacle wouldn't snap down...Chewy's most excellent customer service sent me a new one. With that one, I like the motor up where it has the line, and it runs once, then goes back about 1" PAST the line, which means next time it runs it doesn't go totally to the end, and misses smaller pieces. I contacted the manufacturer and tried their troubleshooting, didn't work. So they sent me a new motor and tray, which does the same thing. So I find myself having to watch it and use the scraping paddle to knock the small pieces in. As well as it takes regular scraping the bottom to get the urine clumps that stick to the bottom, and lift them to the top so the rake can grab them and drop them in. I'm not sure about their quality control. But prices was among the lowest, but my kitty is a young growing boy who eats a lot, and produces plenty for it to work with. Anyone else found this or am I an outlier?
This litter box is not worth it. I read the reviews and still bought it and just like all the other reviews, it doesn't work. It does not sense my cat in it so therefore it does not self clean. It also gets stuck. I did use clumping cat litter so when I would manually press the button it worked but that's not the point of an automatic motion sense cleaning litter box.
This cat box started out working well but now it gets stuck. After it scoops the poop, while trying to go back to the starting position, it gets stuck. I have dislodged anything that may be getting in the way but it still gets stuck.
This litter box is very misleading. It doesn’t self clean at all. All of the clumped litter goes to the front side of the pan and just keeps breaking up into smaller pieces. The small pieces just slip right through the cracks and it doesn’t even go to the front side of the litter pan to scoop up the clumped litter! I’m very disappointed.
I’ve been using this brand of litter box for 10 years for my one cat. I’ve had to replace the motor four times. This was the best litter box ever for a while. It was relatively quiet, effective, easy to use, and the cat loved it. But they had some patent strikes in court and sold The company. Since then I purchased a new one, one year ago, it broke yesterday. And it broke worse than all the other ones combined. Previously when the gears failed they replaced the entire motor for free, this time the motor actually snapped. The sad part is it’s a great design and if made with quality materials is about as good as you’re gonna get for self cleaning litter boxes. But 150 bucks a year to replace it it’s just going to bankrupt the new company that’s trying to save money cutting corners.
I read reviews on every automatic litter box out there. I choose this one due to price, reviews, friendliness to the environment and continuing supply costs. To start, it was fairly easy to set up. I did have a bit of trouble sliding the motor unit onto the side of the bin. We got it on correctly with a bit of manhandling. My cats took to it reasonably well. I set up it up but left it off for the first few days to let the kitties adjust. I also left the old boxes set up but stopped scooping them. My cats gravitated to using the new clean box. I turned on the new box and left the old ones as is then slowly removed them over a few days. I only saw one "accident" after removing the old litter boxes. I choose not to use a bag in the waste bin just to limit my plastic usage. It's easy just to rinse out when I empty it. We have 3 cats and I empty the bin 1-2 times a day. It does an okay job of scooping. As other users commented - clumps tend to break apart and small pieces are left behind. Also, clumps do tend to get stuck on the rake. When the rake returns to it's resting place, it sits on top of the litter and can not scoop any urine clumps close to that area. I routinely lift the rake and move the litter out from under it. Also the rake tends to push all the litter to the end of the bin and it needs to be spread back out. Right now, I am using Arm & Hammer clumping litter but I plan to change to a light weight litter to see if clumps fall apart less. Overall, I would not buy another one of these boxes. It has decreased the amount of time I spend scooping litter boxes but not by much.
I purchased this in late Aug but due to moving, I didn't get it ready to use until the beginning of Oct. I had originally planned to switch immediately to this litter box, but decided it was better to make the change after living here for a while. This worked wonderfully for 3 months then started making strange noises. I could not figure out why plus it was still working. Today, I noticed that the green light was no longer on. I unplugged the unit and cleaned it, but it is just not working. Now I have a regular non self-cleaning cat litter box that was quite expensive for what it does. :( 2 stars are because it worked for a few months.
