How exactly does the litter Littermaid work?
The LitterMaid works nearly the same as all other other rake driven pet cat trey on the marketplace the only thing that separates The litter maid LM980 from the others is the affordable price tag, however we is going in depth how the do it yourself cleaning process of the unit works.Littermaid Self applied Cleaning KITTY LITTER BOX Review
This personal cleaning waste materials receptacle works on a series of sensors which are activated prior to the cleaning cycle, just after the kitten has completed his/hers business and leaves the litter box.
Once the kitten has successfully kept the litter box the Litter maids on-board program engages a 10 minute timed wait period prior to the self cleaning process is turned on.
The wait process allows the litter to clump any feces and urine as well as offering your cat enough time to complete his/her’s business, leading your kitten from re-entering the litter pot during the litter cleaning routine.
If your pet cat does indeed re-enter the litter skillet at any given moment in time during the hold off or cleaning process the machine will reset itself for another 10 minutes prior to the cleaning routine is reactivated.
Following the 10 minute delay period the rake is then involved for the home cleaning pattern, the rake combs through the litter and catches all the throw away clumps in its tracks.
After the rake has already reached the other end of the kitty pan the waste material receptacle starts and the waste products is disposed appropriately, going out of no traces of dusty litter and waste material in the misuse pack, keeping everything clean for the next use.
The litterMaid LM980 is a fully automatic self cleaning litter skillet suite, however there is also a manual mode upon this unit, a force button process which allows you to completely clean the litter box by hand by pressing a button, and the machine skips all the delay processes and reaches work for you.
Note: With all rake influenced cat treys there is always a potential for litter being caught in the rake, however the LitterMaid team has managed to get easy to clean with a push-button rake release button that releases the rake module for really easy cleaning.
Guidelines and guidelines
It is strongly recommended that you do not over complete the litter holder as this can cause the rake to jam and would require manual assistance, best to keep the litter below the red lines to be safe.
When there is a electric power outage and the power is reconnected the machine will remain off before unit is switched again on again.
It is strongly recommended to never obtain the sensor damp as this may damage the items functionality.
When the litter box is near to a bedroom it is advisable to turn it off during the night as this device can be really loud

My Final conclusion on the Litter MaidLittermaid LM980 Mega programmed kitty litter box Review
My thoughts on the LitterMaid self applied cleaning litter box is as comes after, I find the unit is a well made and easy to use, it eliminates scent as promised and makes life a little easier to deal with a cat skillet.
Its perhaps not a totally hands-free, non-scooping solution however it performs perfectly for the affordable price it begins at.
The one issues i needed with the litter pan is the guides, they aren’t as clear as what you could expect and the unit is a little hard to set up if you don’t have instructional video recording as the machine comes with a lot of items to assemble.
Overall i think the unit functions well for the price range, that being said its certainly not the best automatic feline receptacle on the market however it is a value for your money.
