LR III Review

Litter Robot III notices when your cat exits, timing the cleaning cycle so that waste will clump before the robot starts up automatically. The globe will slowly rotate to separate litter from waste, meaning that all you have to do is empty it out. A self-cleaning litter box like this one works with only a couple button presses and some simple cleaning.

Features

This self-cleaning automatic litter box works great for multiple cats, saving you up to 50% of your litter. With the large entryway and automatic night light, you don’t need to worry about your cat getting in and out. The durable construction will make sure the litter and the odor stay in with the waste while your cat comes out looking pristine. There’s even a light that’ll let you know when the waste drawer is full so you can empty it out!

Pros

  • Even with two cats, you only need to empty it once a week
  • It stops automatically, so if it’s cycling when your cat goes in, it’ll stop
  • The box is fairly quiet and won't bother you or your cats
  • Cuts litter usage by at least 75% for some users

Keep In Mind

  • Does require some space
  • A little pricey but most people agree that the quality and convenience more than makes up for it!
  • Sometimes the sheet on the bottom might need to be readjusted

General Customer Impression: Benefits

Most customers are incredibly pleased with their purchase. For more benefits, check out my post on why it's simply the best. It is a little large and many people note the price, but the product completes blows them away. Lance was so happy that it worked for multiple cats easily, and that it was able to “sleep” for 8 hours during the night. He loved how well-made it was, so it was easy to clean out the waste tray and dump the litter just using a button. 

Cassie loved the way everything clumped together, and many customers noticed how this especially reduced litter usage by as much as 75%. Some cats even become obsessed with their new box as they adjusted quickly! If they try to go in while it’s cycling, it’ll even stop just to let them do their business.

Of course there were a few issues, although most people didn’t consider them to be deal breakers. The litter box does self-clean and deposit the waste into a container that you empty out, but some buyers wish it was bigger. This would let you wait just a little longer between cleanings. Other than simple things like this, the price was the main issue. It was a lot for most people, although each of them found that the price was completely worth it when you consider what you’re getting. The plastic liners add a bit to the cost too, and the noise can be annoying if the box is in your room. As long as the model is working correctly, people love it.

LR III vs LRII

The new and improved version  is definitely an advancement over the Litter Robot 2. How, you ask? Well, it may not be worlds apart, but there are some new features that people find to be very useful when reviewing their new robot.

One of these features is the light on the drawer that tells you when it’s full. You won’t need to guess anymore, and can just empty it out when you see the flashing. Older models were also more difficult to see in easily. They were a little lower and had a very small door.

With the Litter Robot III, you won’t have any trouble seeing inside, and multiple cats or larger cats can fit in without any sort of problem. The higher model also allows you to read the print on the buttons with greater ease, without constantly bending over and getting too close.

Cats are even known to love it, whether they jump up or use a stool. The new LED light is a little dorky for some people, although if your cat can’t see well or you set it in a darkened area, it’ll help them find it easier. Overall, the new features really make the entire product worth it.​

Litter Robot LRII

Litter Robot is an exceptionally advanced solution and having it will literally mean you will never have to scoop a filthy litter again. Yes, even if you have more than 1 cat! It has a one-of-a-kind configuration with a spinning system that isolates the waste from the spotless litter and stores it in a repository on the base of the unit. If you have small cats that weigh no more than 5 pounds, be sure to supervise their use of the machine.

Because of its light weight, its mechanism won't be activated automatically, hence making the machine not as safe or effective for them. So if you do happen to have a small cat, you should use the box manually by turning on the unit when it should be cleaned and turning it off when the cleaning cycle has finished.

Litter Robot II works with clustering feline litter and the use of Ultra-Premium Clumping Cat Litter is recommended if you want to avoid issues like dust when rotating, waste getting stuck on the Globe, dust when spinning or controlling bad odors. Please note that the unit does not work with litters that are non-clustering, litters based with newspaper nor pellets with Pine bases.

How Does the LRII Work?

Once your cat gets in the box, its weight is identified by an uncommon sensor which triggers a 7-minute commencement after it leaves the unit to begin a cleaning cycle. When the counter hits zero, the constituent of the globe spins and carefully isolates the waste bunches from the spotless litter. These clusters drop into a waste drawer situated at the base of the unit. This drawer contains a carbon channel for better smell control.

For your cat's safety, the globe turns gradually and the unit stops consequently if your feline re-enters the litter box while in cleaning process. The machine will stop for 15 seconds to continue the cleaning cycle. If the cat is still inside the device, the Globe won't turn. It is unique in that it does not have a rake system and thus does not need to be cleaned and maintained frequently. The highlight  is that a simple push of the "cycle" button is all you need to get manual cleaning cycles.

Cleaning litter boxes will become extremely easy; you just need to change kitchen junk packs at regular intervals.

Litter Robot LRII VS Litter Robot Bubble Globe

Both variants have a lip extender and you could also opt to purchase a fence that closes with the lip to act as a powerful boundary which could also be your cat's entrance into the globe. Basically, the distinctive feature is the globe: the LR Bubble Globe has a window that actually resembles a "Skylight Bubble" which helps to enhance the space by 3 inches (front to back depth) and gives the litter chamber a natural light. Not to mention it looks pretty cool too.

Both are easy to operate and set up while enabling you to have no contact with waste. ​Both also work with almost all kinds of clumping litter (except pine).

The drawbacks to consider include the size - these machines can be a little big. They might also not work well for cats weighing more than 15lbs. For small cats weighing less than 5lbs, it is recommended that you use the machine manually.​

Some cats do take some time to get used to an automatic box. One tip to ease your cat into it is to unplug the machine first and let your cat get used to it with the machine turned off. In this way, your cat might be less nervous about it.

Some people also try leaving their old waste receptacle next to it.​
