Product Description

LitterMaid Self Cleaning Litter box eliminates most odors while keeping the litter box clean for your cat. It's an inventive design: as your cat exits the LitterMaid Self Cleaning Litter box a sensor is triggered which sets a 10 minute timer. After 10 minutes the cleaning cycle starts and the rake scoops out the waste clumps putting them into a waste receptacle that automatically reseals itself. If the cat re-enters and leaves the litter box before the initial 10 minutes have elapsed, the timer will automatically reset and delay the beginning of the cleaning cycle for an additional 10 minutes. Not only will your cat love the LitterMaid¿ Self-Cleaning Litter Box, but you also will love how easy it is to keep your house smelling fresh and clean. The LitterMaid Self Cleaning Litter box comes with an AC adapter that can be plugged into your outlet. The litterbox will also run on 8 D cell batteries (recommended for back up use only).

[Review updated after 3 months' use, in brackets. Now that I'm used to it, I'm even more satisfied than I was at first, and I'm spending less time dealing with litter.]

I've had the LitterMaid for about 2-1/2 weeks, after having dealt with conventional litter boxes for years. Before I bought it, I read many of the Amazon reviews, and that led to some conclusions both about the product and about the people who use it. I have 3 indoor/outdoor cats.

You'll be happiest with LitterMaid if you're willing to perform a check for 10 seconds every 1-2 nights, consisting of glancing at the unit to see if everything is in order and if the waste disposal tub is full.

About twice a week, you may need to use the scoop (included) to smooth out the litter or to remove any waste that's gotten caught between the rake tines. I'd suggest also using the scoop to scrape up any mounds of dirty litter that have adhered to the bottom of the box underneath the litter surface. Unless the scoop is very dirty, just keep it in a baggie near the box without washing it each time. This whole process should take less than 60 seconds [well, maybe a few minutes, at times].

Every 2-3 weeks, depending on how many cats you have, you'll need to snap out the main litterbox and do a more thorough cleaning. This is definitely a drag, but no moreso than with every other litterbox in the world. [I've now gone more than a month without taking apart and cleaning the main compartment. As long as you do the routine cleaning above, it's possible to go longer between major cleanings without problems or odor, though I do have an additional litter strainer with finer openings than the included scoop to remove smaller waste particles.

I bought the Littermaid about three months ago, and so far I have had no mechanical problems. It tends to jam alot though, requiring me to go downstairs and manually scoop the litter and clean off the tines. I have a female that doesn't like to cover her poo, so she is usually the culprit in the jamming problem...the poo doesn't have a chance to harden in the litter and it sticks to the tines creating a shovel effect rather than the raking effect. If you have a cat that doesn't cover well, skip this product.
It is loud! It wakes me up frequently, and the replacement waste bins for it are expensive ... and with three cats I change it every two days.
It is very particular about litter. You have to get the really good kind for it to work to your satisfaction (no dampness or small clumps of waste left in the litter). Annoyingly, there are always wet pancakes of litter stuck on the bottom that the rakes can't reach.
Overall, it really doesn't save much time. I have found that I have to completely change out my litter every three days or so, because the thing just jams up unless you have maximum clumping power going. The time spent unjamming, scraping the bottom, scraping stuck poo off the tines etc. is about equal to what it would take a person to care for a regular litter box.
I would recommend it to anyone with a very picky cat who demands pristine litter all the time...you will get that with this machine maybe 50% of the time. More if you buy super expensive litter and have a cat who covers their poo very well.

The LitterMaid works reasonably well. It does make a lot of noise when it cleans the box - enough to be heard thoughout a small house. Sometimes the waste gets stuck in the rake or breaks into smaller pieces that are not collected but, it is still far easier than doing it manually. Ours did jam mid-rake cycle about 3 months after we got it. Their customer service was outstanding. I only had to return the wire that powers the rake to secure shipment of a brand new LitterMaid. The new LitterMaid arrived in about two weeks and I did not have to ship the old one back.

I have 4 cats, a total of 4 litter boxes including the maid. I bought the LME700 when it was on sale a few weeks ago. Here are my tips / thoughts.

After opening the box I wiped down the entire unit, including the rake with mineral oil. This will help presents from being stuck to the bottom. After that we used tidy cat multi cats / world's best cat litter mix for litter. So far it has worked well, but I hear arm and hammer's high performance is a good litter to use with this machine. I will be trying this next.

So far 2 of the 4 cats are using the box on regular bases (2-5 times a day) in the week I have owned the unit. The other two haven't tried because Cat #3 is a 17 year old cat; he's set in his ways. Cat #4 needs to go on xanax; she's a bit high strung to say the least.

We line the bins with plastic grocery bags and that seems to work well. I don't find it difficult to remove the bags, and this saves spending money on bins.

Occasionally if your cat takes a monster sized pee the rake might get some litter/pee attached. The unit comes with a scooper with teeth on the end. These teeth fit in-between the rake teeth, and make for an easy quick clean. If you cover it it'll scoop up the next time around. Of course since you rubbed the unit down with mineral oil (hint) you'll find that the clumps come off very easily.

It will not pick-up pieces that are smaller than the space in-between the rakes (about 1/2 an inch). Big deal, I'm not fussy about that. As long as massive turds aren't sitting and stinking, I'm happy.

I also do not find the unit to be loud. We live in a small 1100 sq ft condo and the unit is a doorway down and it does not both us when we are asleep.
