    I love my Littermaid 980 Multi-Cat Self Cleaning Litterbox. I have 2 cats - 13 to 14 pounds each - and this works well for them. It is my second Littermaid Self Cleaning Litterbox but this one is a slight upgrade. It is deeper and quieter. My first one lasted about two years and that was two years I did not have to scoop. i use my Walmart carry-out plastic grocery bags to line the inside of the catch bin and catch the poo which made each bin last about three months or more and saved me money. I just pulled the full bags out, tied the tops up and discarded them which left my bin clean as a whistle for the next time. Littermaid makes it easier for me to love my cats!!!

    I had owned a LitterMaid Litterbox for many years in the past. Since it worked consistently every day for more than 6 years, day in and day out. and gave me "yeoman's duty," to use a Navy expression, I knew that when the motor finally gave out, that I would purchase a newer, improved model of this product. There was never any question about it. I was so tempted to buy one of the Elite series of this product but after reading other customer reviews on this website and others, I decided against it, and boy, am I thankful that I did. I (and my kitties) are so very pleased with this product since it has four great new features: (1) The sides of the litter box are higher so I don't have to constantly sweep out the litter that falls over the side. (2) Also, I noticed that the litter box motor on this model is so much quieter than the previous model which is a blessing since I placed it in the master bathroom. (3) I am able to put 50% more kitty litter into the litter box. (4) It has the dual power option. It can run on regular household current or 8, D batteries (not included) if the power fails in an emergency. This particular model, the 980, is specifically designed for use by Multi-Cat households with cats over 15 pounds like my "Big Boy" Tomcat! Just have to caution you that since it is a new item, the kitties may take a few days to become comfortable with it. The old litter box had such a familiar odor. Even though it has a one year Limited Warranty, you should have many years of satisfied use out of this product! If you purchase this litter box, I don't think that you will ever regret it! A very good value for the money!

    Customer review by olds97lss

    4.0 stars by olds97lss

    We have had 2 cats for 12 years. We have used littermaid automatic boxes for 11 of them. Our first two lasted about 5 years each. Over the past 1.5 years, we have had 4 of the "new improved" elite mega models and now have the 980. Neither the LME9250 and LME9000 worked as well as the old non-wire rake models. As noted, we had 4 of them break over the past 1.5 years. The last one only lasted 2 weeks before it started endless cycling and eventually would just error out with the rake in teh home position. It would run 5 times like it would if it was getting stuck, but even without any litter in it, it would fully cycle 5 times and then go to home position and the light would blink, until the cats used it again, then it would cycle 5 times and the light would blink... It did this for a week and started skipping teeth (grinding sound during the cycles). So, in an effort to find reliability, I started searching the net for anything but the littermaid LME9250 and LME9000. We require the larger box due to one of our cats being a 20lb moose of a cat that barely fits in it. I luckily found this model. I did not realize at the time that it wasn't exactly like our original 2, but when I opened it, I realized it was a little different (detachable rake, 2 colors). When it ran, it was a lot different, way more quiet than any of the box's we had. Especially the first two. They were pretty noisy when running, whereas the later "elite" models were much quieter. It seems to do a better job removing the refuse, gets stuck almost never and is really quiet. I'm actually contemplating buying another and storing it for when this one dies in case they quit making it... but I lack the storage to do so. Been working great for the past 3 weeks. Here's to hoping I got another 5 year box!

    • A. Yes the ramp "snaps" into the box very tightly. Be careful when removing if its been used or the litter captured there will go all over the place when pulling it loose. I'm guessing it wasnt made to be constantly removed from the unit.

    • A. Yes. Placing the cleaning ramp on the front of the box is totally optional. The ramp rests on two pegs; one on each side of the unit and is not necessary. My kittens don't even use it - they rub their paws on the rim of the unit before leaving the box!

    • A. PROBABLY not litter sticks to rake and either makes several attempts or shuts off. Motor burned out 3rd Day. VERY shallow basin so still needed daily attention. Cats completely traumatized by noise when doing sweeps.

    • A. I've only had experience with having two cats at a time, which this model handles easily, so I think it should be fine. Always make sure the box/or description states its for "multiple cats." I bought this model (980) for my single cat in anticipation of adopting another one.

    • A. yes. however most vets will tell you that each cat in your household should have its own litter box. However, sometimes that just isn't doable for some of us. I have 3 cats and 2 litter boxes and the littermaid litterbox. this littermaid box works great and all three of my cats use it but I plan on buying one more and just use the littermaid boxes.

    • A. The only thing you may need to buy other than litter are new plastic waste receptacles. It comes with 4 or 5, but I've found over the years that if you dump the waste into a grocery bag to throw in the trash, the receptacle can be used over and over for a period of time.

    • A. Manufacturer recommends replacing the plastic waste receptacle/tray periodically; however, if you line it with a plastic bag (like from a grocery store) then the tray will last longer.
