Their "COMPACT NEW" models feature built-in hoppers for greater convenience and are fully automatic pellet fired boilers with modulating controls and a self cleaning burner. Their website is not much help and the guarantee on the units is not very good when compared to other brands.
The AUTOPELLET boilers (shown here) are fully automatic and offer either vacuum or auger feed options. They feature two stage combustion and a durable stainless steel combustion chamber as well as automatic heat exchanger cleaning.

The CONVERTIBLE model is designed for homes where bags of pellets are used and it has a very large 300 pound storage hopper. It is less expensive and easily upgraded to fully automatic operation at a later time. The brand is backed by a good warranty but is only available through a limited dealer network in the USA and Canada.
