"moto de nieve"
Explanation:
un "moto de nieve" refers to a skiddoo, which I would be right in thinking is like a motorbike on snow (?).
For cat this would come from its deisgn bearing some resemblance to a caterpillar & this is the vehicle used for pushing and crushing snow on skiruns etc. In which case, it would be "máquinas quitanieve"

Thank you very much for your answer. Finally I discovered
that "cat" is "máquina pisanieves" which is not the same but both words can be misunderstood easily. Thanks again.

Explanation:
Skidoos son trineos. La traducción literal sería deslizador, pero no se usa en español.
Cats son vagones especiales que también see deslizan sobre la nieve.
Suerte.
