Welcome to the forum, great to have you here. Based on your avatar picture, I deduce two things.
1. You got loading pics down. We need pics of afore mentioned tractor.
2. Can you reach the pedals?

I bought a 1618 with the front loader and three point rear. I'm looking for a mower deck and a front snow blade. Also could use any advice as I am not a previous tractor owner.
Sounds like you hit a homerun your first at bat. Does it have a rear pto? seems like a rear mower would be easier to get on and off a loader tractor than a belly mount, which hurts ground clearance. I'd try to clamp a blade on the bucket, unless the bucket goes on and off easy, that way you can pop the blade and use the bucket if the banks start to pile up, good luck

That plow is awesome and I would love one. Where or how should I look and what can I expect to spend.

Thanks I am excited to put it to work. My first outing was a bust I was trying to plow with the loader with no weight added and got stuck. Had to shovel for hours to get it out.
I agree that a rear mower is probably the best option. I doesn't have a rear PTO

Could you post some pictures of this tractor? If its the same one in your avatar, it looks to be more of a 2414 or 2416.

Hi COPK, welcome to the PK world and the site, as posted without pics we can't be sure if you really have a tractor yes if your rear tires don't have ballast in them you can't do much with a PK especially one with a FEL and wheel wts are also nice to have, I ballast mine with -25* windshied washer fluid not as much wt as Chloride but not corrosive which is a big plus. I prefer to remove the loader and use a regular blade for plowing snow, on the 1618 I found a nice 4 wheeler blade that was easy to adapt and works great and very easy to install and remove as it has quick attach mounts.

Thanks, I did add the washer fluid and it helped also put on some chains. Still need a plow though.

Hi COPK, nice looking tractor, looks just like my 1618, here's my opinion remove the loader arms and find either a PK dozer / plow blade you find the tractor will steer like it has power steering and it will be so much handier to maneuver with just a plow blade vs the plow blade on the loader, its pretty easy to remove and reinstall the loader arms.

I would think the snowplow attachment for the FEL would be hard to find separately , If you can do some fabrication I can try making a drawing of how it fits to the loader arms ( really isn't much to it ) the plow blade isn't much different then the standard one . Those are a little easier to find , but you could adapt others .

Blades are out there, just need to get all the correct mount parts and the lift link. Sometimes these parts got lost in the transitions of the blade and owners. With loader on, it kinda limits other attachments mounting and the arms and such get in way of usage. I have had a blade mounted on loader. I made it from stock PK blade and then added metal just like a factory made blade had and it worked. Sold tractor before I could get it used in snow. If you get mower deck, I suggest a 48" and not the 60". Sixties became popular about this time as a sales plus, but they scalp easier and not as nice of cut as 48, my opinion. You'll need the later style mounting and Mule drive attachment for this year tractor. Epay has lots of PK items, might check them out. Only way to have rear mower is to have one with engine on it and pull with 3pt hitch, just like a big tractor.
