Motor con reductora
Explanation:
MOTORES CON REDUCTORA

First I would like to give you some context and definitions I needed to really understand what it is a geared motor.

1. Geared motor -- this is essentially a small DC motor, with even smaller gears on the output shaft (to reduce output shaft speed, and increase output torque).
Reference: http://bftgu.botic.com/parts_mech_gearmotors.html

(Next context make clear that geared motor and gearmotor is the same term for this kind of motor.

"Geared motors

...If you just wanted to buy off-the-shelf, geared motors are generally expensive; I generally resort either to salvaging or building mine.
You can buy some nice gearmotors; although it's tough to find any motor that's both readily available and affordable...

http://bftgu.botic.com/parts_mech_gearmotors.html

Now the definitions, taking into account that geared motor and gearmotor are sinonimous.

GEARHEAD
The portion of a gearmotor which contains the actual gearing which converts the basic motor speed to the rated output speed.


GEARMOTOR
A gearhead and motor combination to reduce the speed of the motor to obtain the desired RPM's.

Reference: first reference below.

From this it is clear to me that the gearhead it's just a "caja de cambios o de velocidades" or a "reductora". This second term is more widely used for machines, while the first it is more use when talking about cars.

And finally I give you a reference where you can find this context:

Motor con Reductora 17:1: Dispone de salida doble de 20mm. de longitud y 4 mm. de Ø. Funciona entre 1,5-12V c.c.
Motor con Reductora 14,4:1: Dispone de salida doble de 15mm. de longitud y 4 mm. de Ø. Funciona entre 1,5-12V c.c.
Motor con Reductora 23:1: Dispone de salida doble de 25mm. de longitud y 4 mm. de Ø. Funciona entre 1,5-12V c.c.

Reference: second reference below.

After all this I have to say that the previous answers seem to me fully functional, thou the one I am suggested it is used in the industry and more transparent.

I really hope this will help you.
Hasta otra.

También aquí me parece que puede haber un error en la traducción al inglés y que se trata de "gear motor".

motor de engranajes


Explanation:
Means it has different speeds and probably an automatic shut-off (might just be guessing at that fact).
