The LitterMaid Elite Mega Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Box keeps your home practically free of bad smells. It cuts down bad odor and mess from cat waste. When your cat has left the box, the LitterMaid will use its steel rake to push the waste to a sealable container located beneath the box. Then an ionic air cleaner will be activated to absorb and freshen the air. The air cleaner will cut down the bad odor by more than half. At night the ionic air cleaners cycles on for 10 minutes for every hours to ensure odor free air.
For safety reason, the rake will automatically stop and reverse immediately when touch. The rake also can be detached for easy cleaning. The LitterMaid comes with sealed disposable waste receptacle complete with the carbon filter which allows for safe and easy disposal of waste.
The unit is perfect for a large cat or few cats. All it needs is AC supply or standard D batteries to operate.

What Others are saying :
kdea473 – No more scooping!
I had seen these fancy litter boxes before but had resisted because of the high price tag and the uncertainty of whether they would work. When this litter box was offered as part of the Vine program, I jumped at it.
The litter box is a lot larger than I had anticipated (I hadn’t actually measured out the dimensions given on the item description). The assembly took about 20 minutes. The manual says to use “premium” scoopable litter; I filled it with Tidy Cats scoopable.
When the unit was powered on, it made its first pass. My younger cat got in, sniffed around, and exited. I knew that would trip the motion sensor, so I waited 10 minutes for the scoop cycle. Unfortunately, the rake moved to the dump position, then stopped. Following the troubleshooting directions, I couldn’t get it to work. I cringed as I realized I would have to call the 800-number for help. After about 5 minutes on hold, I was connected with an agent with a firm command of the English language. She was able to give me an alternate fix, and the unit worked again.
The noise of the unit sounds like an electric can opener. My cats (age 9 months and 2.5 years) do not seem to be afraid of it. In fact, the younger one comes running when he hears it start so that he can watch the rake.
I have been impressed with the overall performance of the unit. After reading the previous review where the unit did not scoop anything, I was worried. The rake is able to scoop and dump all but the smallest of clumps (the ones that are so small they fit between the tines of the rake). I add a little bit more litter every couple of days to keep it filled to the right level.
A few negative things (that keep it from getting a five-star review):
-The waste receptacle fills up about every two days with two cats. Replacing them will get expensive, so I am hoping that I can empty a receptacle and reuse it at least once.
-The unit is noisy when in cleaning mode. I have activated the 8-hour sleep timer, but if you’re trying to get some extra sleep in the morning when the 8 hours is up, you’ll probably hear the motor.
-The price of the unit. The standard recommendation for the number of litter boxes in your home is the number of cats plus one (meaning I need 3 litter boxes). While I like this litter box, there is no way I could afford to have 3 of them, so I have to stick with my existing standard boxes.
Overall, I am more impressed than I thought I would be. Each time I check on the box, I am relieved that it has been scooped without me having to do the dirty work. If anything changes, I will update the review.
