How The Littermaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box Works

The LitterMaid works like this: After detecting when your cat has left the box, dual-motion sensors activate an automatic durable steel rake to push the cat’s waste into a seal-able container beneath the box. This sealed, disposable receptacle features a carbon filter to absorb and remove odors.

Next, a sensor-activated ionic air cleaner uses odor-absorbing carbon filters to freshen the air, resulting in a reduction of waste odor by more than 50 percent!

Other unique features of the LitterMaid Self-Cleaning litter box are a detachable rake mechanism designed for efficient and easy cleaning, new and improved high-sidewalls that help to prevent litter scatter, and an included scoop and rake cleaner that makes clean-up a breeze.

Maintenance of the unit is easy as well. The rake detaches for easy cleaning. At night, the rake stays rested for 9 hours, during which time the ionic air cleaner cycles on for 10 minutes every hour to ensure your morning will be odor-free.

Some cat owners are hesitant of automatic parts for safety reasons, but with the LitterMaid Elite Mega there is no need to worry about your cat’s safety. Numerous safety features are built in to the product. The rake is designed to stop and reverse at the slightest touch, and the removable ramp traps litter from your cat’s paws as it exits the box so it won’t track pieces of waste and litter onto your floor. All of this makes the LitterMaid Elite Mega healthier for your pet than traditional cat boxes.

The litter box operates using AC current (power cord included) or standard D batteries. Also included are 4 carbon filters, 4 waste receptacles, a washable area carpet, and a privacy tent that fits snugly over the box to give kitty some privacy.

The LitterMaid Elite Mega Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Box measures 28.2 x 8.7 x 20.2 inches. It is perfect for large-cat or multiple-cat households.

Video Review off the Littermaid Elite automatic litter box

The owner shows a couple of small problems in this video, and you will see that they are easy enough to work your way around. He says he still reccomends this unit, and it is the best automatic litter box he has tried so far.

Although LitterMaid Self-Cleaning litter boxes greatly reduce the hassle of litter box maintenance, it is recommended that cat-owners clean and maintain the box on a regular basis by replacing litter as necessary and emptying and replacing receptacles and carbon filters. Doing this helps to keep your LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box operating at full-efficiency.

5 Reviews of “LitterMaid Elite Mega Automatic Litter Box”

  • N.L. Yarber Says…

    I used the Littermaid 700 for 3 years with my cats and was happy. I just purchased this box and I am over the moon! It accommodates my very large cat, as well as works great in a multiple cat setting.
    My cats all share this one box with no issues. I find it to be more quiet than the 700, and although I can still hear it, I don’t find it excessive, and it is a machine and some noise should be expected. Guests mention no odor from the box, and I love the ionic filter. I do line the waste receptacles as they get very expensive.
    This model allows for the rake to be easily removed for cleaning, and the whole unit took 10 minutes to assemble. Nothing beats a litter box that cleans itself!

  • Memoiai Says…

    Ultimate Edition LitterMaid automatic litter box is definitely the right investment and became a must have for my 2 cats. Following the instructions, it was easy to assemble and set-up (about 10-15 minutes). The cats had no problem switching from the old cat litter box to the new one. It almost completely eliminates the odor (thanks to the Built-in Ionic Air Cleaner) and it is very easy to clean.
    It still requires some attention but cuts manual scooping to about 20% compared to regular litter boxes. The container (for all the excrements) fills up in about a week and it’s easy to replace. I keep the litter box in the basement where I have enough space for it and I have set-up the sleep timer to minimize hearing the noise from moveable parts when the litter is operating.
    But the noise, which is equivalent to a printer, is a minor inconvenience comparing to all the other benefits. I definitely recommend this product for multiple cats. A must have!

  • OlyVeg Says…

    This was fairly easy to assemble, took my husband about 15 minutes. I thought it would freak my cat out, but it didn’t. She was really curious at first and then went to work. What I like about it is there is less odor and less work to do. The ramp attached is easy to clean and leaves less mess on the floor around the box.

    I subtracted a star due to the replacements you need there are ongoing costs to maintaining it. It’s noisy in the cleaning mode. The waste receptacle is a little on the small side and the rake misses some of the smaller clumps.
    But overall, I like the product. I wasn’t expecting a miracle with it, I just wanted something to make the task less unpleasant and tedious and it does that job for me just fine.

  • R. Lanthier Says…

    This is the first automatic litter box I have ever used and I must say that I was skeptical at first. I have now been using the Littermaid Ultimate box for about two weeks. I suppose I should say that my two cats have been using the box!!! Anyway if you are thinking that the the littermaid will relieve you of litterbox duty think again. There is still much work to be done, however, the littermaid does a nice job of lessening that chore considerably.
    In my manual box days, I would scoop once a day, and then clean the whole box out every two weeks or so. Currently, I am down to about every third or fourth day to scoop with the Littermaid, and this is scooping the small particles that the Maid could not get. I do think that is quite a savings compared to the fully manual box. I also find the odor control to be MUCH improved (thank you!).

    However, the box is large, noisy, and not the easiest thing to set up. I just found out that it has no memory when there is a power failure, so settings are not saved. While this version of the Littermaid is full-featured (you can, for example, set the box to not go off for nine hours while you sleep – YES, it is that loud!), the features are difficult to use and program. The plastic waste receptacles are really pretty annoying, so flimsy and tough to work with when full. I would far rather a sturdy reusable plastic/metal waste receptacle that you could just dump every so often into the trash and then wash it out.

  • Alan Borchers Says…

    I purchased this new and improved Litter Maid self-cleaning litter box, thinking I would get an upgraded product. Nothing could be further from the truth. If the thing had more power it would work great, but for the most part it doesn’t have enough oomph to scrape out the kitty debris without pulling the motor down to where it reverses itself and eventually turns itself off, with the mess still in the box. I don’t recommend.
