Radiator woes and they're new???

Hello I have a slantfin boiler with all cast iron rads, and a circulator pump.

Recently, I reno-ed my basement and added 2 rads. After many questions I was told that Stelrad rads would work with the cast iron ones. So that brings me to they don't put as much heat out as they should be. I went back to the location where I purchased them....they suggested I add a circulator to the rad?????

Is this right... and what should I do as I spent alot of money on the two.
Any help would be appreciated.

New Rads

Did you add them to an existing loop? If so, where are the rest of the rads on that loop? What is the pipe size? How are they piped? All air out of the system? Sorry for all of the questions but without knowing your set-up, I won't be of much help.
